Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects (GSAA) has announced a merger with Gene Kaufman Architect (GKA) to extend their reach and provide a full spectrum of architectural services to residential, commercial and institutional clients.
GKA will retain the same name, while GSAA is becoming Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman & Associates (GSKA), reflecting Mr. Kaufman’s new role as principal of GSKA. He will serve as the chief executive officer of both firms. GSAA leadership will continue to be provided by Robert Siegel, FAIA, founding partner of the firm.
“There is an inherent synergy between our firms,” said Mr. Siegel. “Our diverse viewpoints are coming together in a healthy, intuitive way. Merging our expertise benefits everyone, most of all our clients. I believe working cooperatively is crucial to success, and I am looking forward to exploring and achieving all the potential of this exciting partnership.”
“In response to an ever-changing marketplace, we are building on our collective experience to deliver unparalleled results for every client and commission," said Mr. Kaufman. “Our combined resume encompasses every project type and, while each firm will maintain its own identity, together, the collaboration will foster a mutually beneficial cross fertilization of ideas, knowledge and opportunities."
For more than 40 years, GSAA has represented quintessential modernism and peerless quality, designing iconic, enduring structures for private clients, international developers and major cultural, educational and government institutions.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, GKA has cultivated strong, collaborative relationships with some of the most active developers in real estate, helping them realize substantial bottom-line results through thoughtful design.
Collectively, the firms have completed a number of high-profile projects including the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the expansion and renovation of the Guggenheim Museum, Morgan Stanley World Headquarters (1585 Broadway, NYC), the W New York- Downtown Hotel, The Setai, The Strand Hotel, The Hotel Williamsburg and The Residences at The Williamsburg as well as more than 20 other new ground-up New York City hotels, multi-family residences and New York City school facilities.
The firms have a number of major projects underway or slated to begin shortly, including the expansion of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, a new SUNY Plattsburg School of Business and Economics building, new hotels for Holiday Inn, Hyatt, Hilton, Hyatt, Starwood and Intercontinental as well as luxury multi-family residences in TriBeCa, the East Village and the Financial District and several private homes across the U.S.
