Scott Mahaffey Architect is a design-oriented full service architectural practice based in Manhattan, serving New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Vermont. Clients have included individuals and public institutions, business owners, developers and builders. Completed projects range from mixed use, multi- and single- family buildings, individual apartments and private houses, to offices, a photographer’s studio, a fabrics showroom, bars, cafes, and public and retail projects. To each project and client we bring a fresh sheet of paper and no prior expectation of the final design. We don’t mind budgets, we like challenges, we enjoy the process and working with the contractors and subs to create what are still largely handmade works. We keep one foot in the nitty gritty, the details, and the other in the abstract, the thinking behind the fundamental human need to build, gather, create a place in the world.
