Michael Dwyer is a Manhattan based architect known for the creation of new custom residences, designed with taste and discernment to look as though they have always been there, yet built with state of the art mechanical systems offering all of the amenities of modern life. Since 1996, he has built new houses in Greenwich, Southampton, East Hampton, Nantucket and elsewhere, as well as many apartments in New York City.
Each project is designed through extensive collaboration with the client, a process that typically includes top-drawer interior decorators, landscape designers, builders and artisans. As the project coordinator, we guide each project forward in a spirit of teamwork, endeavoring to create the home that our client has imagined, with results that are better for our having been involved.
Michael Dwyer, the principal of the firm, studied architecture at Columbia College and the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to his residential work, he was the architect for the Eleanor Roosevelt Monument in Riverside Park, restored the George F. Baker House, a designated New York City landmark, and renovated the Cosmopolitan Club, a women’s club in New York. He was the editor of Great Houses of the Hudson River (2001) and the author of Carolands (2006).
