FOUNDER & ARCHITECT
EK ARCHITECTURE, PLLC
I am a registered architect in New York State and the founder of EK Architecture, PLLC, a creative and innovative architecture firm focusing on healthy and regenerative building design in Midtown Manhattan. In addition, I am the founder of onE.GLobe™, scalable prototypes, and artistic experiments to explore future visions. Experiments include diverse types of organically grown breathing structures with sense engagements and adaptive uses.
During my two-decades-long career, I studied architecture and interior architecture. I gained expert knowledge of eco-districts, data-driven smart eco-cities, well-being-driven, regenerative building design & construction, passive house, computational design, and BIM.
I think ahead of time, develop novel programmatic ideas, and design timelessly with the future in mind using the latest technology. I have experience in various markets from residential, aviation, corporate office, luxury retail, hospitality, mixed-use residential, and commercial buildings. My worldly experience, highly conceptual thinking, and script-writing ability allow me to quickly develop complex programs and design options for architectural projects. Combined with my extensive technical expertise in healthy and high-performance buildings, I offer seamless design through construction administration services for residential and mixed-use projects, including high-performance retrofits and deep remodels in New York. I also assist homeowners with local state incentive programs for high-performance retrofits.
