Ennead Architects creates architecture that shapes the public realm: this has been central to our practice since 1963. Our 180-person firm, based in New York City, works primarily with educational, cultural and scientific clients, including some of the most venerable institutions in North America, from Stanford to Yale Universities, from the American Museum of Natural History to the Clinton Presidential Library, from Carnegie Hall to the Standard Hotel on the High Line. Our diverse portfolio includes new construction, renovation and expansion, historic preservation, interior design and master planning. Through form, light and materiality, we create expressive architecture that embodies each client’s mission and engages the user while shaping our place and time. Our project teams undertake a rigorous analysis of the history, context and program of each project, which is executed with meticulous attention to the details of the building as well as the public spaces around them. This approach maximizes our broad-based knowledge while allowing elegant design solutions to emerge. We believe this process unleashes the power of architecture to advance the human condition, inspire innovation, catalyze neighborhoods and enrich our cultural experiences.
