Firm Description

Newman Architects is a collaborative design studio based in New Haven, Connecticut, and led by five principals: A. Brooks Fischer, AIA; José Hernández, AIA, NOMA, LEED GA; Melinda Agron, AIA, NOMA, LEED GA; Peter Newman, Assoc. AIA; and Richard Munday, AIA. Together, our staff of thirty-eight forms a knowledge-driven architectural practice working together to shape space and expand possibilities for education, commercial, and community clients.

Newman provides comprehensive architectural, interiors, lighting, and graphic design services from community engagement, programming, and conceptual design through construction administration and post-occupancy evaluation. Our work has been acknowledged for its excellence in design, management, sustainability, and team collaboration with over 150 awards and—most importantly—has established longstanding relationships with many of our clients.

Herbert Newman founded our firm in 1964 with a commitment to creating functional, nurturing environments that have a sense of belonging to the communities they serve. In working towards our contemporary mission to create places of enduring value that serve, sustain, and enrich life, we are driven by six core values that define our approach to our work and to our interactions with each other: Capability, Curiosity, Integrity, Belonging, Agility, and Care.

Our work balances timeless design principles that respond to fundamental human needs with the flexibility to respond to evolving social and technological demands. Our aim is to create lasting architecture with clear patterns of organization, straightforward yet sensitive geometries, plentiful access to natural light, shared paths and places for community, universal accessibility, and environmental, social, and economic sustainability. These simple ideas reflect the aspiration that all our work foster connection between people and place.
