For over half a century, we have built a national reputation for the design of new buildings and the renovation and restoration of existing buildings.

Who We Are

The firm has a national reputation for the quality of its work, with projects ranging from private houses to the scale of campus and urban neighborhoods, and including urban housing, residence halls, academic buildings, libraries, and schools.

Founded in 1964 by Herbert S. Newman, FAIA, Newman Architects has received over 150 awards for design excellence.

Philosophy


What we create should improve the lives of the people, society at large and the environment. We want to realize the idea of a better, richer place made palpable through the shaping of space, place, form, and climate. People need to feel that they belong to something larger. They seek connection to others and to make sense of the world. So, the architecture they inhabit should represent and respond to something larger than either the individual or the group, and provide places where people find that they can both be themselves and recognize the physical, social and cultural structures that surround them.
