SMA | Stephen Moser Architects is an architecture and design studio based in New York City with a portfolio of innovative residences, civic-private projects, and ideas-generating competitions.
Our work can be found in Colorado, Connecticut, Long Island, NYC, and Westchester County. The focus in all our projects is on making beautiful, coherent spaces that respond to the uniqueness of place and reflect how people live and work. We seek a clarity of vision: a relationship between exterior and interior that values simplicity, coherency, and openness.
We value collaboration within our studio and work closely with our clients to help them successfully realize their vision. As a full-service architecture and design firm, we take our projects from conceptual beginning through the completion of construction and beyond.
Residential projects include a house in the Colorado Rockies carved into the side of a mountain; a net-zero beach house on Shelter Island that is a contemporary re-interpretation of a saltbox cottage, and a mid-century modern renovation of the Landsberg House on Long Island, for which SMA received an AIA award.
Civic-private work includes a master plan in NYC’s Fort Tryon Park for a historic restaurant and its neighboring parkland, and a comprehensive study for Summer Stage in Central Park. Among SMA’s competition entries are a new contemporary art wing for the Lima (Peru) Art Museum and an award-winning design for “Unbuild the Wall,” an ideas competition reimagining a one-mile segment of the US/Mexico border as an open park.
