Architecture with a modern sensibility

FR Review:
Lang Architecture receives rave reviews from clients not only for its ability to bring a modern sensibility to traditional spaces, but also for its conscientious devotion to client happiness. Though stylistically clean and modern, Drew Lang, the principal of Lang Architecture, appreciates and treasures the historic elements in buildings. As he says, he “takes cues from history,” and it is this layering of historic with modern elements that distinguishes Lang Architecture.

Drew Lang holds a degree in architecture from Yale University, where he studied under Steven Harris (who gave Lang his first job). Lang Architecture does mostly residential renovations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. However, the company also does development work in New Orleans (Lang’s hometown) and the Hudson River Valley. Lang Architecture does not handle the construction management portion of projects, but we hear that the firm is more than willing to point clients towards recommended contractors. The firm has a staff of eight (including Lang) and charges an average percentage of construction costs, though they'll sometimes work hourly or for a fixed fee.

Representative Client Comments:
"We couldn't be happier with the work that Drew Lang has done on our Brooklyn townhouse. Drew is a very talented architect who came up with creative solutions for a relatively challenging space. He has impeccable taste and exacting standards, but was also mindful of our budget and willing to work within those constraints. Perhaps most importantly, he stuck with our project throughout the construction process, never losing interest or moving on to other projects but always making us feel that our home was important to him." "His most admirable quality is that he always listens to what I, the client, have to say, and then actually takes it into account! Lang Architecture has helped me to translate my disconnected ideas into a beautiful design, and I am very grateful for it." “I am an interior designer in the Hudson Valley who is lucky to have connected with Drew. He and his team are talented, creative and sensitive. His Hudson Woods project in upstate NY shows how attuned he is to the environment.” “They are implementing ideas on how we should live and utilizing the earth for our energy needs.” “I would work with him on anything!”

Project Description & Comments:
Drew Lang and his team are skilled architects and project managers. They designed a beautiful home for us out of a historic NYC brownstone townhouse. The firm is small enough so that we always felt that we were getting the personal attention to detail. We would recommend them to others and look to forward to working with them again on our next project.
