McMahon-Baek Architecture, D.P.C. is an architecture and design firm rooted in the broad experience of its two principals, Thomas McMahon and Janny Baek. The firm aspires to, above all, do good work. Whether this means utilizing cutting edge technology or honing traditional technique, researching appropriate precedents or inventing entirely new responses, the goal is to work toward elegant solutions to the challenge, pleasure, and privilege of making buildings, spaces, and objects. While sensitive to the effects and meaning of design choices, the firms principals are purposefully agnostic regarding devotion to any particular style.
