ARNOLD STUDIO is a full service architecture and design practice based in New York City that focuses on creating environments which reconsider the conventional and seek out new relationships to create unique experiences. The office is committed to supporting our clients through every step of the design and construction process in an efficient, economic and sustainable manner.

ARNOLD STUDIO’s designs evolve through an ongoing dialogue with our clients and react to each project’s unique site and programmatic requirements. Our innovative solutions are driven by a focus on being at once unexpected, inquisitive and engaging.
