ARCHITECTUREFIRM is a collaboration of architects and designers in Brooklyn, New York and Richmond, Virginia, led by Danny MacNelly, Katie MacNelly, and Adam Ruffin.  We strive to create architecture that is simple, beautiful, and economical of both means and gestures. 

We believe that architecture should be integral with its place and that the best buildings allow people to fully experience the light and nature of that place.  Our chief pursuit is a timeless expression of architecture that is appropriate to its users and their purpose, that blends progressive technology with elemental form.
