Ed Kopel Architects is a full-service architectural firm specializing in design-intensive projects that demand imaginative solutions. Ed Kopel Architects was founded in 2001 by Columbia Classmate Ed Kopel and Bjorn Slate. After Bjorn's departure in 2003, the firm continued to operate using the original name, SK Architecture, P.C. until it was charged to Ed Kopel Architects, PC in 2005. The firm is LEED Accredited and a member of the AIA (American Institute of Architects)
Each project is treated as a unique opportunity for architectural expression. Solving the functional problems is the first step towards producing rich and enduring architecture. Timeless designs are guided by ideas that blossom or burnish over time.Services offered:
