Kliment Halsband Architects is dedicated to the idea that good architecture imparts dignity to organizational mission and individual endeavor. We transform buildings and sites with a measured approach that engages the past and welcomes the future. We advocate for energy efficiency, abundant natural light, user wellness, and accessibility for all. We judge our projects’ long-term sustainability by their enduring usefulness: beauty, intelligibility to the people who use them, and ability to adapt to change. Founded in New York City in 1972, the firm is a diverse group of 25 architects and staff. Our approach is distinguished by the direct involvement of the partners through all project phases. We collaborate in small teams tailored to each project. The firm has received the AIA Firm Award, the AIA New York City Medal of Honor, and over 150 awards for design excellence. Our work has been widely published and exhibited in the United States and abroad.
