about

PIERCE ALLEN's offices are located in the heart of Chelsea in New York City. The firm encourages an innovative and collaborative environment among architects and designers of the firm.

PIERCE ALLEN is unique in its approach to traditional and modern aesthetics providing clients with an unparalleled degree of personal attention. Clients range from modernist purists to collectors of fine antiques, interested in developing a fresh approach toward design. Full architecture and design services are available through the firm. In the past 17 years PIERCE ALLEN has developed a broad range of projects, both residential and commercial.

We believe the language of each interior is the result of a combined artistic vision between the designer and the client. New York Magazine writes, "Architect Michael Pierce and designer DD Allen make an energetic team, injecting projects with tight plans, relaxed furniture, color on walls, and a balance of luxury and simplicity in fabric and materials." The firm's innovative aesthetic juxtaposes contemporary details with rich texture, achieving colorful and sophisticated modern spaces. Our trademark approach to interiors involves developing the distinctive character of your personal space through the merging of a combination of design aesthetics.

Often completing several projects for each client, PIERCE ALLEN has experience designing in both urban and rural environments. Possessing the ability to synthesize the interior of any room with the surrounding cityscape or countryside, the firm has realized graceful residence in cities such as New York, Boston, Miami, and Los Angeles; as well as vacation homes in Palm Beach, the Hamptons and Cape Cod. Regardless of location, all of PIERCE ALLEN's projects utilize materials that stimulate the senses and design that enhances the fluidity of daily life, resulting in client-specific, detail-oriented work of the highest elegance and style.
