John Ronan Architects is an internationally-recognized architecture firm committed to design excellence.  The firm’s work is marked by conceptual innovation, exploration of materiality, a rigorous attention to detail, and the seamless integration of building systems.  The studio’s working method is research-based, interdisciplinary and collaborative.  The firm pursues an iterative design methodology to explore and test a wide range of design responses in order to find the appropriate response that feels intuitively correct for each individual situation, based on its client, site, program and context—cultural, historical, economic and social.  With projects worldwide, the firm provides a variety of architectural and design services (urban design and planning, landscape design, interior design and graphic design), and promotes an interdisciplinary approach to design that includes the leading experts in their field as collaborators.  To each project the office brings an exploratory attitude to the investigation of space and materiality, and a concern for issues of sustainability and the performance of the building over time, both functionally and environmentally.
