New York City-based Diana Kellogg Architects is committed to sustainable design. Founded in 1992 by Diana Kellogg, the award-winning firm got its start in high-end residential but has evolved in its latter years into nonprofit and community work. A guiding core principle of the Company is its deference to an existing sense of place and history — creating spaces that provide for communal interconnectivity. Kellogg’s steadfast belief is that thoughtful design through spatial arrangements versus complicated details and expensive materials is what impacts the lives of people the most. The overall emphasis of the firm is one of flexibility to programmatic requirements, site and historic concerns and innovative construction with a dedication to high quality of design.
Most recently, Diana Kellogg Architects won critical acclaim for her work on the GYAAN Center in Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, India, commissioned by non-profit CITTA. The structure houses three buildings — The Rajkumari Ratnavati Girl’s School, an exhibition space and a women’s cooperative where artisans will teach mothers and other women traditional skills. The Center will be completely sustainable and serve the lives of the community.
Founder and Principal Diana Kellogg received a Master of Architecture from Columbia University and a BA from Williams College. Prior to establishing her own firm in 1992, Diana was associated with the firm of Gluckman Tang Architects and Selldorf Architects. Diana Kellogg Architects’ work has been featured in various publications including The New York Times, CNN, Architectural Digest and New York Magazine and has won multiple international design awards.
