DELSON or SHERMAN ARCHITECTS PC is a Brooklyn design firm founded in 1997 by Perla Delson and Jeff Sherman. The firm’s diverse portfolio combines clean, understated detail with careful space planning. We have a reputation for brilliant design, rigorous involvement during construction, and meticulous bid documents.

We are good listeners. More than working diligently to fulfill the needs of our clients, we see the design and construction process as inherently collaborative—with clients, with consultants, and with contractors. Our work benefits from our tactical deployment of budget, deliberate economies of gesture, and painstakingly detailed construction documents.

In place of a signature style, the firm focuses on the unique opportunities of each project. We address site-specific concerns with fresh ideas while incorporating proven solutions into new contexts. We value the sustainable restoration of old buildings. But we also believe these can be gracefully bridged to the present with innovative additions. By coupling elegant modernism with traditional materials, our work has a sense of inevitability. Our designs feel as though they have always belonged to the site.

New Prospects
A Brooklyn architect shows what a little elbow grease, a healthy dose of naïveté, and a decade can accomplish.
