Profile


vonDALWIG Architecture, originally formed as Manifold Architecture Studio PLLC in 2009, is a recognized architectural firm that maintains strong interests in space, program, context and potential - and strives to fully engage with the manifold aspects of architecture and spatial design.

Our work is distinct in the desire to implement an initial understanding of all qualities of the project, beginning with a 'stripping down' of components to allow a clarity of definition then pursuing design solutions that promote lasting engagements with space while simultaneously allowing distinct interpretations. Vibrant solutions, with a simple complexity. This approach also permits a versatile perspective, with a collection of completed projects that range from a small fashion booth to private residences to large developments and working with organizations such UPI, Steven Alan, LAGCC and Gasoline Alley Coffee. Our work to date has garnered recognition from the Brooklyn AIA and the AIA NY New Practices award.
