FIRM

Taylor Viazzo Architects is an award winning architecture and interior design firm located in New Rochelle, NY, just twelve miles north of New York City.

Much of our work is focused in our surrounding areas of Westchester County, Long Island, New York City, New Jersey and Connecticut. But we have ventured out further with projects in Massachusetts, New Mexico, and even to the Caribbean Island of Bonaire. Our diverse portfolio of residential and commercial projects includes: new single family homes; renovations and additions; mufti-family residential; new commercial buildings, adaptive reuse of existing buildings; corporate interiors; retail; trade shows, and education spaces. Together with our talented staff, and network of consultants and contractors, we have been able to provide successful designs that have enriched the lives of our clients and the communities where they live and work.
