The office of Robert M. Gurney, FAIA is dedicated to the design of modern, meticulously detailed and thoughtfully ordered residential and commercial projects that are sensitive to site, program and budget. Materials are employed with honesty, integrity and ecological awareness. Interior spaces are active and intricate, tranquil and minimal. Regardless of project size or budget, our office is committed to producing buildings and spaces that strive for design excellence.
Whether working in complex historical districts or on a vacant site, the design process involves an understanding of site specific issues of location, landscape, history, availability of materials and construction methods, while including considerable client interaction.
Design solutions arrive through the thoughtful manipulation of light, color, texture, form and geometry, culminating in architecture that is simultaneously complex and distilled. An understanding of current technology, attention to detail, and awareness of location, landscape and history, lead to design solutions that respect historical, topographical and regional context, without being revivalist.
The office of Robert M. Gurney, FAIA has created a body of work that has won more than two hundred seventy local, regional and national design awards. The office’s work has been published in numerous local, national and international magazines, books and periodicals, and is the subject of a monograph, “Modern Order Houses by Robert Gurney”.
