Fjord is a Brooklyn-based architecture practice specializing in contemporary design. Built on the premise that buildings have the potential to positively affect their inhabitants' lives, Fjord strives to design projects that are both thoughtful and at times bold, always exuding integrity and strength of purpose. Our goal is to create buildings and spaces that have clarity of concept and construction, which in turn translates to healthy and beautiful living and working environments. Like its namesake, Fjord cultivates an intimate connection to landscape, materiality and process.
