Janson Goldstein is a full service architecture and interior design firm that creates environments for a wide range of retail, residential and commercial clients in the U.S. and abroad. Founded by architects Mark Janson and Hal Goldstein in 1995, and joined by retail specialist Steven Scuro in 2000, Janson Goldstein specializes in developing solutions particular to the challenges of each project. The firm operates on the assumption that design is only the beginning, and devotes its considerable talents to ensuring that projects are properly phased and coordinated with respect to schedule and budget.
Janson Goldstein's retail practice focuses on providing responses to image and merchandising issues, while working to establish and reinforce a unique presence for each client. The firm's roster of retailers includes many fashion industry leaders, such as Giorgio Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo, Burberry, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Holt Renfrew.
Janson Goldstein's work encompasses commercial and hospitality design as well. Notable projects include Andaz West Hollywood (for Hyatt International), restaurants for Daniel Boulud, and spa at the W New York.
Janson Goldstein's modernism is clearly demonstrated in its high-end residential projects, which occupy some of Manhattan's most enviable addresses, among them, Park Avenue, Central Park West, Riverside Drive, West Village, and Tribeca. In addition, the firm has designed country houses in Bedford, New York, and Deerfield, Wisconsin, and an oceanfront residence on New York's Long Island.
The contrast of project types illustrates the firm's philosophy that a diversity of challenges and responses enriches the design process and the development of each unique undertaking. Each Janson Goldstein project reveals the firm's approach to smart space planning, refined materials, sophisticated color palettes, and a mix of classic and custom furnishings.
