Our Firm

About LEVY Architects

LEVY Architects merges the talents of Stephen V. Levy and Michael Gin. LEVY is devoted to a creative design approach that expresses the client’s needs and surroundings. Through a careful analysis of the site, space, light, and surrounding context, the craft of design is distilled into the art of place. LEVY approaches design with a team-based mentality, and we engage every client at all levels of design. Each project poses a unique set of opportunities that allow us to develop a creative solution to our client’s needs, intentions, and budget. The creation of high quality, individualized architecture within a limited budget requires a constant exploration of simple structural systems and the creative use of affordable new and off-the-shelf materials. Each project presents the opportunity to embrace the ambitions and needs of its users, a specific context, an exploration of conceptual and practical ideas, the use of natural light, and new technological and material applications.

LEVY believes that great relationships are the foundation of great buildings. From the collaboration that takes place during the design-build phase to the client's experience within a finished space, Levy Architects brings a renewed focus to our clients and our craft. We work directly with every client, from general contractors to sole proprietors, to ensure the shared vision of a project becomes a shared success.
