The office of Bruce D. Nagel, Architect was opened December 1984 in East Hampton, New York and relocated to Southampton, New York in 2004. The office remained there until 2011. In 2011 Mr. Nagel relocated his office to East Quogue, New York.

Now with offices in the Hamptons and Chicago, we have the ability to design and produce projects of all sizes throughout the world. The firm is led by the Founder and Managing Partner Bruce Nagel and his partner Dave Walker.
Dave Walker was Bruce’s trusted associate for 12 years before relocating to Chicago. Besides having a strong background in high end residential, he now also has a history with high end retail and display design. Mr. Walker is the partner in charge of the Chicago office.
For over four decades, Bruce Nagel and his partner have been selected to create important works in both the public and private spectrums. The office aspires to thoughtful, elegant contemporary architecture that responds to our clients’ expectations for beauty and form, and fulfills complex programmatic and operational needs.
Our work includes country houses and year-round residences, beach houses and other second homes, extensions, interior in full remodeling, apartments and townhouses ranging from the very small to the very large and located not only from Manhattan to Montauk, but in Las Vegas, South Carolina, Connecticut, New Jersey, Chicago and beyond.
Ultimately, as our philosophy states, no matter how large or how small our residential projects are, or what type, or where they are located, we strive to have happy clients who like their homes and use them well.
Each residence is a unique project , with the primary emphasis on a client-related solution, on its particular fit and suitability. As an initial step, we request our residential clients to record a written program describing their goals for the project and eliciting their wants and needs in as much detail as they wish. While this program is inevitably altered in the course of working out a solution, the particular tenor of our client's initial program remains a keynote throughout my design process.
We want each project to acquire through this program keynote a strong, clear idea, which is consistent with its organization. we strive thereby to functionally satisfy our client's detailed needs and to give them something more, something that only architecture can give them, as well.
We are prepared to provide evaluations of existing buildings and site conditions and amenities - from all aspects, and to refer to and recommend appropriate specialists.
We work with a variety of materials and finishes. Where our projects support the use of a fresh new material, we are inclined to employ one, and where matching or relating to the quality of an existing finish is called for, we integrate that finish in our solution.
