OUR FIRM PROVIDES ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES FOR THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION

CO-OP RENOVATIONS
Co-op and condominium renovations present unique challenges to even seasoned buyers. Even a knowledgeable owner can run into unnecessary complications and delayed scheduling if the project is not planned and executed well. Our New York architecture firm has thousands of hours of experience with even the most demanding and seemingly inflexible co-op and condo boards.

COMMERCIAL & WORKPLACE INTERIORS
Architectural design for institutions involves in depth design of space used by public and private organizations. Places such as offices, medical facilities, philanthropic foundations and libraries among other building types. As an architect in New York I focus on combining aesthetic design with the particular requirements of the institution. The design must ensure the right functional space for all those persons using the facility.

NEW CONSTRUCTION
Your new home is a huge investment. It will usually cost several hundred thousand dollars, perhaps more, depending on the features, size, location, & materials you chose. That means you’ll need a great architect in New York City. As your architect my goal is to design a home that fits you like a glove. I will be your advocate and will guide you through the process. We will discuss foundations, structure, colors, textures, roofing materials, types of windows, doors, flooring, insulation, and exterior materials.

THE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS
The design process is divided into phases. They are Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.

The first phase is Schematic Design. We begin this phase by discussing function for the project and put together a plan that works for you. We’ll develop a few options and discuss them with you. We’ll look some at some interior room elevations and exterior elevations along with 3-D drawings to better understand the choices. When a plan is approved, we’ll continue developing the scheme in the Design Development phase.

In the Design Development phase, we refine the design and look closely at the aesthetics of the project. More 3-D sketches may be employed. The rest of the interior room elevations and exterior ones will be drawn. We will use these drawings to discuss materials for the project and select them. Things like wood flooring, stone, tile, and wall finishes. We’ll also select lighting, appliances, plumbing fixtures, and door hardware. These drawings will depict the proposed renovation in sufficient detail to both confirm your approval as well as to obtain a preliminary budget estimate.

The third phase is the Construction Documents phase. During this phase we develop construction details for the project. Detail drawings convey information of a very specific nature and are essential for a full understanding of a project. They will include functional things such as a floor drain installation and also show details such as mouldings and other more strictly aesthetic things.

Lastly, during the construction administration phase, we’ll assure that everything is proceeding as planned. I will meet with the contractor on a periodic basis and answer questions that have come up during the construction process.

Living in a space that has been tailored to your lifestyle will give you great joy.

The architect, Le Corbusier said that:

“The home should be a treasure chest for living"

CONSULTATIONS
Mark Holmquist Architect thrives on projects of all sizes and budgets. Every project size presents its own set of unique challenges. For example, a project with a limited budget will necessitate a judicious use of materials. Mixing one or two more costly materials along with inexpensive ones results in a dynamic visual feast. A project that is challenged by space constraints to discover new and innovative ideas of solving projects. We love it all.

We love discussing new projects so drop us a line or give us a call. Mark will meet you at your house, apartment, or workplace. Alternatively, we can walk through using your device. We are used to working virtually having worked with clients far and wide.

There is no charge for an initial consultation.

“Mark has trained with some of New York’s top tier architects and designers. He enthusiastically agreed to take on my project. His ideas were creative and imaginative and Mark was great to work with. Not only was the project within budget and on time, the end results exceeded my expectations. He transformed my space into the glamourous home that it is today. I highly recommend him.”

-Sheelin Wilson, Sheelin Wilson Gilding Studio, NYC 

 

“As a real estate professional who specializes in high-end real estate I can wholeheartedly recommend Mark Holmquist. I have worked with Mark on several pre sales walk-thru. Mark is able to quickly assess a property, understand its strengths and weaknesses and to suggest how the property can be developed to its full potential and value. I depend on Mark’s intuition and guidance to truly appreciate a property.”

-Ivan Hernandez, Douglas- Elliman, New York & Miami


“Mark is one of the best architects in New York City that I know. He has great taste, a refined aesthetic sensibility, and an innate sense of what is going to work best in a given space. He is very talented,”

-JH Smith, New York, Ny
