SPG Architects is a mid-sized architectural firm based in New York City. Founded by Coty Sidnam and currently directed by Eric Gartner, SPG is an award-winning design practice that also provides a comprehensive range of architecture and design services. The firm has served our clients on a wide variety of regional, national, and international projects that include single- and multi-family residences, retail environments, corporate interiors, and institutional and hospitality buildings and spaces.
Corporate clients have included a wide range of fashion and design companies, as well as traditional and new media companies. Residences include numerous co-op and condominium apartments, urban townhouses, second homes, free-standing houses, and residential compounds throughout the United States and Latin America. Although the clients are diverse, they are united in their desire for architecture that is well conceived and well executed by a team of thoughtful and energetic design professionals.
Working in the modernist tradition, SPG employs a sense of “critical regionalism” to what originated as an International Style of forward looking architecture. This approach applies sustainable solutions and locally relevant construction technologies and materials to create unique client and site driven solutions.
SPG Architects’ modernist approach to design allows for the various functions of a space to be organized and expressed, while eliminating the cacophony of the untended environment. Architectural ideas are drawn from the project site and the client’s needs and desires. These then are expressed through manipulations of form and light. An interest in up-to-date building technologies, natural and man-made construction materials, and a constantly developing approach to sustainable design strategies further inform our designs. SPG’s work clearly presents a visual consistency based on human proportions, the exploration of light, and the judicious use of materials that provide singular tactile, visual, spatial and temporal experiences.
