Axelrod Architects is a design-oriented, comprehensive architectural firm that creates distinctive residences, institutional and commercial buildings and interiors, in the modernist style. The firm is known for its attentiveness to fine detailing, honest expression of materials, and clean, simple forms. The timeless, serene, and minimalist designs of Axelrod Architects evoke a sense of quiet power without being overpowering.
The meticulous care given to each project is immediately apparent. Each line, surface, and volume exists to satisfy a particular need or desire on the part of the client. There are no extraneous elements, nothing in the design that has not been thought through in terms of style and function.
The Axelrod design approach emphasizes the continuity of space within the parameters of the building program; each space is thematically connected to every other space. The use of free-floating architectural elements is a hallmark of Axelrod design. Visual corridors within the spatial expanse enliven the connectivity of the whole; a sense of location within the project is tangible.
Axelrod Architects provides unparalleled service from conceptual design through construction. That service is based on two foundations: complete and accurate design and construction documents, as well as rigorous construction oversight. Axelrod Architects’ close involvement with the contractor before and during construction pays off with fewer costly field changes and a more precisely constructed building.
