Pliskin Architecture PLLC

Pliskin Architecture PLLC is a full-service architecture and interior design firm, located in Tribeca, at the Hudson River Collaborative. Founded on a dedication to design quality, Pliskin Architecture seeks to make architecture that balances our enduring commitment to our clients, our communities and our planet, building on this balance to create places with a lasting effect.

Affecting lives of individuals through their physical space has directed us to aspire for positive change in everything we do. Better homes, better classrooms, and better offices make for better interactions: within a family, between students, amongst ourselves. We design spaces for people, architecture as a means to an end, not an end in itself. We value the lessons we learn from our clients and users as they embrace the spaces we create.

Our work spans scales and regions, and focuses on residential, commercial and hospitality projects in New York City. Each project is conceived through a series of rational explorations that study internal constraints of program and budget and external physical, social and contextual challenges, and yield results that are tailored to client, time and place.
