During the last twelve years, Cooper Joseph Studio (formerly Wendy Evans Joseph Architecture) has solidified a reputation for highly detailed, carefully crafted design, garnering over forty design awards. Working across a variety of typologies and scales, Wendy brings a fresh approach to each new commission, while maintaining a well-managed process of building.
In the spring of 2008, Chris Cooper joined Cooper Joseph Studio as a Partner. Chris brings a decade of experience as an Associate Partner at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, allowing us to expand our range of projects while preserving an intimate, hands-on practice. Our website is an overview of our combined experience, illustrating the foundation of our collaborative studio.
The firms award winning, elegant design sensibility comes with a rational methodology required in complex, large-scale as well as small-scale projects. Our team delves deeper into project development, incorporates digital design tools for fabrication and pushes notions of sustainability beyond the usual talking points, all the while continuing to work with our clients in an idea-driven practice.
We share the ambition of design elegance and responsible building. We are eager to explore new forms and materials while responding to the specifics of site, program, budget and schedule. There is boundless room for innovation, and it is that which inspires us.
Cooper Joseph Studio is a Women Business Enterprise (WBE) on the governments of Federal, New York State, and New York City.
