Ryall Sheridan Carroll Architects designs projects which include new construction, renovations of existing structures, and additions to historic structures. Current and recent projects include an extensive renovation of two galleries in Chelsea, the conversion of an 1880s tenement building into an artist's foundation in the East Village, and various residences in Upstate New York, Vermont, Long Island, and townhouse renovations in NYC. All projects incorporate strategies for implementing environmentally-friendly, sustainable design. The studio works on projects beginning with the conceptual design phase, and following through with comprehensive working drawings and specifications, pricing of the work with contractors and participation in regular site meeting. The firm has successfully produced commercial, institutional, and residential projects that have benefited from a close working relationship between client and all members of the project team. Within the first year of working in our office, all members of the design team are encouraged to study for and become certified as a Passive House Designer.

Passive House

  • All of our projects incorporate strategies for implementing environmentally-friendly, sustainable design. In order to provide a shared knowledge base in the office, all designers are encouraged to take the course and exam to become a Certified Passive House Designer. We have designed multiple certified Passive House buildings, starting in 2012, and all of our designs implement Passive House strategies so as to reduce the energy load of the buildings and produce more comfortable space to live and work.

We start on our projects by working with models and sketches to develop designs while paying particular attention to the site, the context and the requirements of the client. At the same time, Passive House design principles are a central focus of our design development. Hardline drawings and 3D renderings are then produced while working collaboratively with the client, consultants and contractor. We are involved in the design at all scales, from site planning to custom hardware.
