About us

Leonard Colchamiro PC AIA Architects and Planners is a general practice of architecture committed to providing creative design and comprehensive support services such as construction consulting to help our clients produce excellent buildings and spaces, eco-friendly, and sustainable concepts.

Our firm has been in practice since 1973 and has been responsible for the design of commercial, residential, industrial, educational, day care, retail, and health-related Projects in the New York Metropolitan Area and in major cities throughout the United States, England, Denmark, Israel, and Peru. Projects include: new construction, restoration, adaptive reuse, space planning, interior design, and various combinations. The firm has special expertise in the design, public agency processing, and construction management of complex multi-use and adaptive reuse projects. New York City municipal agencies (Department of Buildings, Landmark Preservation Commission, Waterfront Permits Unit, etc) expediting is handled in-house.

Senior personnel participate in design and production, and monitor budget, schedule, and regulatory agency status at all phases of each project. In addition to the design of buildings and spaces, the firm provides support services in the form of program planning, site selection, feasibility analysis, as well as in-progress construction inspections.

A creative, green and economic approach is emphasized. The firm's work is unified by an aesthetic based on a sculptural use of space, structure, and natural light; and a sensitivity to context and detail, rather than a predetermined architectural style. The products of this approach have been recognized with numerous awards and publications as well as consistent client satisfaction.
