Firm Culture

Dattner Architects is an award winning, mid-sized architecture firm based in New York City. Our firm is structured around three studios, each of which focuses on a specific sector: housing; education, institutional and cultural; infrastructure and transportation.

We maintain a vibrant working environment – one that nurtures learning and professional growth through mentorship and daily collaboration, as well as socialization. From “happy hour” presentations, to employee art exhibits, to our office soccer team, our firm fosters diversity, community engagement, live-work balance, and a sense of civic mission. We participate in the Architecture Experience Program (AXP) and encourage Architectural Registration and LEED Accreditation. The firm sponsors a series of office-wide technical, design and practice presentations developed by firm leaders, staff and allied professionals.
