Established in 1987. Cutsogeorge Tooman & Allen Architects P.C. is a mid sized firm with a full time staff of approximately 35 based in New York City. For its twenty year history the firm has divided its work between new design and preservation. CTA has executed a number of institutional designs within existing historic districts and appreciates the challenge of integrating a modern building into historic surroundings. A significant component of the firm’s work has been the preservation and restoration of a wide variety of buildings from many different eras and together with our faÃ§ade and building envelope expertise, we have performed extensive work within the City to assist buildings in meeting the requirements of Local Law 10/80 and subsequently 11/98. Prof. Cutsogeorge has significant hands-on experience in the preservation of complex early Twentieth Century masonry and steel frame structures, ornamental sheet metal construction and roofing.
Our staff is well versed in traditional urban building types, making us uniquely qualified to practice Architecture in New York City where the majority of projects require interaction with existing buildings. Our work continues to respond to both new technology and the historical context in which we practice. This intersection of new interventions within an older context has helped us create a dynamic aesthetic. We further believe that the reuse of existing building stock is among the most sustainable of architectural strategies and with both a Partner and an Associate qualified as LEEDÂ™ Accredited Professionals we are able to practice sustainable building within the LEEDÂ™ system.
