At Fontan Architecture we strive to create spaces that can inspire. We work on promoting a sustainable balance with the environment for the future. We make architecture to enhance the occupant’s experience and well being. We believe architects should create spaces that complement their sites, and fulfill their purpose. Our goal is to maintain a dedication to environmental, social, and community concerns. Architects not only study building construction, but also how we use space. The user experience is of equal importance to the technological systems of construction. We aim to build lasting sustainable and enjoyable spaces. At Fontan Architecture we consider ourselves lucky to be part of building our environments.


Our clients are important to us and the work we do is as well. We communicate with clients to achieve a final product they can be happy with and enjoy for a long time. Whether designing a new building or renovating a small New York apartment we work hard to ensure the completed space is one the client and we, the architects, can be proud of. We love what we do and it is a great privilege to create architecture. We do everything we can to ensure our appreciation and respect for our work comes through in every aspect of what we design. We hope to continue to achieve new goals and work on new challenges. As a small architecture firm in NYC we provide personal service and attention to all project needs. Our New York Architects have experience in a wide range of project / building types.

At our firm we believe in sustainable design. Architects should do everything we can to make Architecture in balance with the environment. We encourage our clients to incorporate sustainable features into every project. Form a new residential development to a small apartment renovation all our work should be sustainable. There can always be something done to reduce a building’s impact on the environment. There are many ways to make sustainable architecture: solar power, high quality insulation, energy efficiency and sustainable materials. These are just a few ways to make a building more sustainable. The most important aspect of sustainable architecture is creating something people will love and take care of that will last a long time. People taking care of buildings is the greatest form of sustainability.
