Robert Young Architects is a 10 person firm, with a large sunny studio space adjacent to the Highline in the West Chelsea arts district in Manhattan. 

COVID-19: The RYA team is currently working hybrid remote/in person. Most team members are currently working remotely but we anticipate transitioning back to working in the studio as soon as it is safe to do so.  

RYA is driven by design. We hold ourselves to a simple but unrelenting standard of good design. First and most importantly, a good design must solve the problem effectively. Second, it must do so poetically, in a way that transcends its utility. RYA team members identify and exploit the unique qualities of each problem with an open mind, so the first often leads to the second. We work collaboratively and non-hierarchically in pursuit of the best design solutions. Every design is the result of countless iterations. Good ideas are adopted regardless of where they come from. Experimentation and free thinking is encouraged. Critical thinking is required.

RYA is not able to sponsor visas. Applicants who are not authorized to work in the United States will not be considered.
