Ohlhausen DuBois Architects is a New York City based architecture and design firm. We create places that delight and satisfy through their simple elegance.
The qualities of a space – the light, the volumes, the textures, the sounds – these are what inspire us. In our design-oriented studio we use these qualities to inform our work on all scales, from a university building, to a house, to a handrail. We make places that are specific to their context, that capture the essence of their location, that feel as if they’ve always been there.
We are dedicated to creating carefully crafted projects, integrating the structure, systems, materials and details into a seamless whole. Daylight is the most important element we work with, animating spaces, bringing materials alive, orienting and connecting us to the world around us.
Listening closely to the needs and desires of our clients, we are experienced guides for each step of the process. At each stage of a project we explore many options and possibilities, continually clarifying and strengthening the design approach.
Over the past twenty years our firm has established a strong reputation for innovative, thoughtful design. We approach every project with a rigor, devotion and passion, and our many awards and many repeat clients attest to our outstanding work.
