What We Do

Minuta Architecture: Creating art you live in. Functional Aesthetic you deserve.

Unlike cookie cutter firms “specializing” in a sector of business, Minuta Architecture realizes that architecture is ever changing and evolving. Many firms use “stock design and details.” Clients have come to us after realizing the fact that this stagnant influence mindset of their last design professional did not meet today’s trends, code compliances, and incurred change orders due to poor detailing and code compliance. Since 2001, Minuta Architecture has never had a change order based on our drawings and specifications. Any change orders incurred were based on clients’ request to have more by means of increased funding or savings found through our easily understood relevant detailing and specifications. Members of our firm are NYSDOS Codes-certified, and we employ retired NYS DOS Code officials with more than 20 years of experience.
Minuta Architecture is a New York-based, full-service architectural firm with two locations in the Mid-Hudson Region, specializing in municipal architecture; professional office architecture (including medical office and commercial); educational architecture; commercial/industrial warehouse architecture; residential/development architecture and more. Whatever your architectural needs, let Minuta Architecture design a space that will inspire and motivate, and be more than accommodating for your business, development or organization!

Municipal/Civic Architecture

Municipal and civic architecture involves designing buildings that fill a key public need and that represent a community’s most vital institutions. Municipalities, government agencies, public safety organizations, libraries, municipal offices, medical examiners offices and all faith-based institutions/ organizations require a building and site planning that can meet their complex operational needs, while also presenting an architectural image that is self-evident of the organization it represents and an environment that leaves a positive indelible experience. Minuta Architecture has decades of experience programming, designing and detailing a variety of municipal projects, including federal government funded buildings that have a host of regulations beyond local building codes and accessibility. Let us design the perfect building that exemplifies your municipal or civic organization!

Professional Office Architecture

Professional office architecture, which includes medical office buildings and commercial/retail office spaces, can be as simplistic or as functionally complex as the organization inhabiting the space would like it to be. Whether you’re looking for strategic design for your professional office building or a calming environment for your medical company, Minuta Architecture can handle every detail including department of health and all other code compliances along the way.

Educational Architecture

Educational architecture involves creating an environment that stimulates minds and is conducive to learning. With today’s ever-changing needs in the educational world, Minuta Architecture can help you design a flexible space with the latest technology to allow for comfortable in-person and remote learning. With no prior experience, we successfully thought through and implemented the COVID re-opening of the Cornwall School District in 2020. With the ever-changing unknowns of what tomorrow will bring, you can count on Minuta Architecture to think ahead of the curve when it comes to the future of educational architecture!

As a child I remember visiting religious buildings, and the sense of awe that God was in the room with me when the rays of light shone through the stained glass and cathedral ceilings. It was at that young age of 5 that I realized that God, through the architect’s hand, created the space for people.”

Warehouse Architecture

Commercial/Industrial Warehouse Architecture

Commercial and industrial warehouse architecture tends to be more straightforward, as the focus is more about necessity than customization. However, Minuta Architecture is capable of customizing your commercial or industrial space to meet your visual preferences and accommodate your professional needs. We have the experience and know-how to design functional and beautiful retail spaces, warehouses and more.

Residential/Development Architecture

With the influx of corporations like Amazon coming to the region, and major tourist attractions like LEGOLAND New York and others attracting jobs and people, the need for residential/development architecture is greater than ever before. With our decades of experience and presence in the region, Minuta Architecture can design lucrative residences – whether single-family homes, townhouses, condos, apartments, tiny homes or mixed-use developments. You can rely on us to create an attractive and fitting community that residents will enjoy living in for years to come!

    We Believe

    We strive to provide buildings and spaces that respond to the needs of those that use them.

    We believe that there is elegance in simplicity.

    We believe that a building is about more than its style or form.

    We believe that small details can make all the difference.

    We believe that a building should not be in nature but a part of it.

    Let's Build Something!
