Armand LeGardeur Architect is a New York City-based architectural firm noted for its detail oriented approach to design and construction. Our philosophy is that each project should evolve directly from client needs and desires, and specifics of site and place, rather than preexisting ideas about form, or style. Principal Armand. LeGardeur has shaped his practice around a commitment to full involvement at each stage of the project, from carefully listening to the goals of clients, to reconciling these ideas creatively with the realities of construction and working cooperatively with builders. The result is a portfolio of buildings that respond sympathetically to their sites, meet the needs of clients with imagination and skill, and create beautiful spaces for private and communal life.
