ARCHITECTUREFIRM is a collaboration of architects and designers in Brooklyn, New York and Richmond, Virginia, led by Danny MacNelly, Katie MacNelly, and Adam Ruffin, specialized in hospitality, residential, and contemporary art spaces. 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 building that is appropriate to its users and their purpose, that blends progressive technology with elemental form.
We are SWaM certified as a small business in the Commonwealth of Virginia and pending in New York State.
ARCHITECTUREFIRM has been named to Architect’s Newspaper | AN Interiors Top 50 Architects for the second year.
