“This boutique architectural design firm, situated in Connecticut and New York, focuses on bespoke projects…Nancy Thiel, an architect with experience in various genres, decided to leave a string of high-profile New York offices and branch out on a more individual path…[creating] spaces with a sense of optimism. ”


“Every client brings their own personality to a project. For the New York office of Collins, chief creative officer and co-founder Brian Collins also brought a sizable collection of books, vintage toys, and furnishings. From oversize comic strips to a scale model of a Holiday Inn, unique objects were carefully integrated into the workspace by Thiel Architecture + Design .”

 “This grand colonial-style farmhouse in Westport, Connecticut, was designed by Thiel Architecture + Design and built by RC Kaeser & Co. The exterior may seem simple, but it shelters a surprisingly large space filled with all manner of modern amenities. The inspiring interior includes a bright-white kitchen with a huge island and subway tile, a luxurious spa-style bathroom, and open living and dining spaces that flow gracefully into each other.

“Most open offices don’t work because little thought goes into how they’re laid out. There is no one-size-fits-all open office. The best work spaces are designed with workers (and the type of work they do) in mind... The open floor plan designed by Thiel Architecture, which includes a pen for the bulk of the creative team, and a slab of table for the product managers, is one such way the structure of the office facilitates work.”

"During the four years Nancy Thiel worked for Robert A.M. Stern, she learned a thing or two about what the renowned architect refers to as modern traditionalism. “He taught me to really examine the proportions of traditional architecture but express them in a modern way,” says Thiel. She took that lesson to heart when designing a classic farm-style residence with 21st-century overtones on a 1.2-acre site across from the Fairfield County Hunt Club. “He told me it’s when you really get to know traditional that you can start playing with it.”"

 “The ground-level sales floor has a residential vibe. “It’s an environment that inspires customers to linger,” Nemarq says. There’s no hard sell, just an array of covetable emerald rings and sapphire bracelets displayed under glass, in black lacquered boxes poised on elegantly tapered copper-finished legs. Transactions are conducted from the comfort of oversize wingbacks upholstered in complementary colors of leather, bronze on the front and black on the button-tufted back..”

 "As with any type of exterior coating, be sure to do your research...Many varieties of exterior stain are available in white, like the one seen here.”
