About Melamed Architect

We are full service architecture and interior design firm based in New York City's Tribeca neighborhood; founded by Yossi Melamed in 2010. 


We have grown from early projects, such as our interior renovation and building additions, to our latest—an 18-story mixed-use tower and 40,000 square-feet ground-up residential building—by our dedication to our clients, and our wish to help them envision and realize the best possible outcomes.
