Andrea Mason / Architect is a multi-disciplinary design firm specializing in both high end retail and residential projects. The design’s sensibility is one that embraces materials, craft, and proportion in relationship to the specificity of a project. An attention to detail incorporating the client’s aspirations, programmatic requirements, and the uniqueness of place, coupled with a clean design sense results in an array of distinctive and personal projects.
Currently, Andrea Mason has been working on numerous high end retail projects with Steven Harris Architects / Rees Roberts & Partners including the Barney’s New York Chelsea flagship store as well as new boutiques for Dolce & Gabbana in Saint Barths, Rome, and Beverly Hills. In addition to these projects, the firm has also collaborated with Laurent Deroo Architecte on the APC Mercer Street store and is working on several residential and commercial projects in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
