About

We believe the craft of architecture must directly enhance the efficiency of a workspace. The look and feel is a critical element, but secondary to the effectiveness and usability of the space. We believe successful design is achieved by understanding our clients business goals and maintaining close collaboration throughout the process. No matter what your project type or size, we will work with you to define and implement solutions that result in beautiful, high-functioning architecture.

John C. Polek, Jr., AIA

Creative efficient office space is not designed by computers but by talented Architects like John Polek. John still hand draws conceptual designs to communicate solutions to a client. He believes innovation comes from understanding the basics – and then knowing when to break away from them. That’s why he considers it vital to participate as a “hands on” Principal of every project.

With a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Temple University, John Polek has been an industry presence for twenty-seven years. His well known projects include leading projects for Yellowbook USA, Ratner & Prestia and First Priority Bank.

John is a registered architect in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware and is a member of good standing of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Al Schwartz, Jr., AIA

In an industry filled with creative talent, it can be easy to find someone to help you create a beautiful space. But sometimes, what appears beautiful to the eye can, in fact, become a hindrance if the definition of beauty is only “skin deep.”

Al Schwartz believes that true beauty is not superficial, but rather improves and enhances the experience of those surrounded by it. That is why he considers it vital to participate as a “hands on” Principal in each and every project in his care.

With Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Ohio State University, Al Schwartz has practiced designing a wide variety of interior environments for more than thirty years. He has lead the project design and architecture of countless national and regional headquarters of well known companies like Allstate Insurance, Siemens, Catholic Health East and Stark & Stark.

Al is registered to practice Architecture in 9 states and is a member of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB). NCARB membership facilitates Al’s registration in all states where clients’ projects dictate.
