We give our clients peace of mind that their project will be completed the way it was planned. we will see a project through from inception to completion. being that many design projects are based on their own merit the process needs to be focused on clients needs, building codes and efficiency and aesthetics of design.


We believe that one of our many strengths is collaboration. collaboration is something that includes all aspects of the design process, from beginning to the end. this includes all parts of the relationship. clients, municipalities, firm professionals and reviewing agencies.

Client Testimonials

 My NYC-based investor relations firm has completed two complete office renovation projects with Evans Architects and our experience with Matt Evans has been excellent. In addition to the office renovation projects in Manhattan, Matt Evans also managed an extensive residential project for us in Greenwich Village. In all cases, we found the Matt and his team to be creative and attentive and the working relationship was smooth and upbeat. We are delighted with the results of all of the projects.  Most recently, he designed our offices in a 10,000 sq ft. loft off of Union Square. The range of options offered and the problem solving that Matt provided enabled us to create large offices with a conference room while still allowing the spaces to feel open and inviting. He also served as a strong liaison with the landlord and contractors involved in the project.  We would highly recommend Evans Architects and Matt Evans for any commercial or residential project.
