SITE PLANNING AND DESIGN

Truly creative solutions must also be practical. As sustainable place-makers and space-shapers, we consider the impact of our design solutions for future generations. By thoughtfully synthesizing site information, namely the natural and human factors that affect a site, we create forward-looking design solutions that serve both the building’s inhabitants and the environment.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The plan and design of each form, space and ambience must reflect functional, technical, social, environmental and aesthetic considerations. Utilizing creative design, suitable materials and new technologies, we harness light and shadow to provide unique structures that enhance the environment. During this design phase we are also very sensitive to pragmatic issues of scheduling, cost estimation and construction administration.

HISTORIC PRESERVATION

Weaving together the new with old requires a delicate, sensitive balance that Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects understands. Our success in Hoboken has drawn the attention of other aging cities where housing is in high demand because of their proximity to cities. Having a strong respect for historic architecture, our contemporary designs incorporate an historic flair and are respectfully blended into each unique neighborhood.

INNOVATIONS

In the U.S., Dean Marchetto pioneered the use of zinc exterior cladding, a natural and green material. In 1996, we designed the first fully robotic parking garage in the U.S., located in Hoboken. We continue to use similar space-saving technology in larger construction projects. We have proven that sustainable design can be successfully integrated in a cost effective manner, having earned LEED certification – including the first Platinum in New Jersey — for six multi-family projects over the last three years.
