Firm ProfileContactsProjects

Martin Kravitt Architects & Planners, with offices in northern Westchester County, New York and Pawlet, Vermont was established in 1980. We are a general practice architectural firm, providing a full range of planning and design services. Our workload includes both public and private sector projects for local governments, school districts, libraries, child care facilities, religious institutions and other organizations, recreational facilities and restaurants, as well as commercial retail and office facilities. A core component of our projects has included single family residences, private estate properties, and historic preservation of landmark structures on state and national registers. As a smaller architectural firm, we stress attention to detail, and the personal involvement of a firm principal at every stage of the project.
