AMIE GROSS ARCHITECTS
We are Amie Gross Architects, and for over thirty years we have been bringing community inspired buildings and interior environments to New York City and the Tri-State Area. AGA is certified as a WBE with New York City, New York State and the School Construction Authority.
Whether you are a not-for-profit or a private corporation, our passion is creating efficiently designed and aesthetically rich spaces that further your mission. We make high quality design possible for projects with moderate construction budgets. Together, we can create a space that feels like the physical embodiment of your organization’s goals.
At the end of the day, we don’t look for buildings to design — we look for clients. Our clients are among the organizations that keep our city vibrant and beautiful. With AGA, the architect-client relationship goes past the confines of a single project. You can rely on our expertise and honesty in everything from navigating a particularly dense knot of DOB regulations to developing a master plan for a new urban environment.
From professional relationships, to buildings, to flourishing urban communities: we are committed to helping build a more equitable
We look forward to working with you.
Amie Gross, AIA
Amie Gross AIA founded Amie Gross Architects in 1984 with the conviction that people of all incomes and needs deserve to be surrounded by high quality, well crafted architecture. Over forty years of multidisciplinary work, Ms. Gross has championed the causes of diversity, community alliance, and direct engagement with urban policy.
At AGA, architecture is the art of building communities. Ms. Gross and her staff believe that a successful space inspires people to achieve gratification and success on four levels: within oneself, in direct human-to-human interaction, among groups, and as a larger neighborhood. Ms. Gross elaborated on this approach in her TEDx talk, “Seeding Community.” This philosophy guides our firm’s every decision, whether we are designing supportive housing in Brooklyn or corporate headquarters in Midtown.
Ms. Gross is often asked to speak about her experience as an architect and the ways in which architecture contributes to the built environment. She has discussed, among many other things, how the built environment of supportive housing in New Jersey affects the clients’ sense of wellbeing; strategies for reducing the costs of affordable housing through careful construction planning; and how to offer sustainable design at a low cost.
A native New Yorker, Ms. Gross graduated from the Washington University School of Architecture in St. Louis, from which she received the Distinguished Alumni Award in 2002. Amie Gross is a registered architect in New York and New Jersey, and is certified by NCARB.
