SPG Architects is a mid-sized architectural firm based in New York City. Headed by two partners, SPG is a strong design practice that also provides a comprehensive range of architectural and interior services. The firm has served a wide variety of clients with a range of regional, national, and international projects that include numerous co-op and condominium apartments, urban townhouses, second homes, free-standing houses and residential compounds, corporate offices and retail establishments. Corporate clients include Polo Ralph Lauren, Time Warner, Calvin Klein, COTY beauty, Comeliani, Catherine Malandrino, Hartmann Luggage, Andrew Martin LTD, Bill Blass New York, Palm Pictures, and American Online. Although the clients are diverse, they are united in their desire for architecture that is well conceived and well executed by a team of professionals.
SPG Architects' modernist approach to design allows for the various functions of a space to be organized and expressed, while eliminating the cacophony of the untended environment. Architectural ideas are drawn from the project site and the client's needs and desires. These then are expressed through manipulations of form and light. An interest in up-to-date building technologies and construction materials, both natural and man-made, further informs the design. SPG's work clearly presents a visual consistency based on human proportions, the exploration of light, and the judicious use of materials that provide singular tactile, visual, spatial and temporal experiences.
