The Firm

APD Architecture & Design is a full-service, award-winning architectural and planning firm with offices in Norwalk, Connecticut and Quogue, New York. Founded in 1982 by partners David Austin, AIA and McKee Patterson, AIA, the firm is overseen by Senior Principal, Stuart Disston, AIA, LEED GA and Principal, Joshua Rosensweig, Associate AIA. The staff of 17 includes four registered architects, two LEED accredited, nine architects/designers.

The firm’s work is largely focused on bespoke projects, residential, hospitality and private clubs. We feel confident doing a broad spectrum of styles and types: renovations, restorations, additions, apartments and new residences. Our design approach respects the integrity of both the built and natural contexts that make every building site unique. The partnership brings to each project a thorough knowledge and understanding of architectural precedent and fresh design solutions that are appropriate to a project’s context and responsive to the clients’ needs and aspirations.

“I would not say that the firm has a particular ‘cookie cutter’ style,” explains Mr. Disston. “I can tell you what others have said: our work has an intimate scale and attention to detail, that even our larger residences do not seem imposing and that our interiors work together and are well tailored in their material detail.”
