Our Vision

We strive to always make good places for people.

Our Principles: architecture with purpose, shaping the public realm, community building, sense of place. We are architects & planners providing services in all phases of building design. Committed to architecture that supports and enhances a project’s program. To design that is informed by its site, surroundings, social and cultural elements. Our goal is to define places that respond to human needs and aspirations.

Our Ownership

We are a minority-owned, professional architectural practice.

The practice has continuously evolved since 1976, embracing new clients, technologies, materials and building types. The current leadership transition began the gradual and continuous evolution from the firms’ identification with the two founding partners, Emanuel Kelly FAIA and Vincent Maiello AIA (retired). Principals now include Troy C. Leonard AIA, James Karmolinski AIA and Brian Yachyshen AIA.

Our team is collaborative in the office and with clients.

Our Process

We are conscientious designers who care about your building.

Our work is one of collaboration, among clients, staff and consultants. We consider each project on its own terms, with experience not preconception, according to the needs and aspirations of the client and users. Principals are intimately involved in all aspects of the work from initial discussions with the client through completion of construction. This continuity of effort by experienced people assures the highest quality of service, within schedules and available budgets.

Our History

We are shaped by our past, looking to the future.

Our history is rich; the people who have made that story and lead the firm are an alliance of Architects who engage architecture as a humanizing force with an optimistic endeavor. We analyze the past but reach for the future. Our heritage allows us to choose invention and experimentation.
