Design Services

building design and advice

We are not architects. But as design-oriented builders we can help you think through all aspects of your project, from the creation of a vision through to execution. We can be your “project sherpa”, helping to guide you through aesthetic, practical, technical and financial considerations in a thoughtful, unified process.

interior design and advice

For both commercial and residential projects, we bring the same holistic mindset to interior design. With kitchens and bathrooms, we try to equally balance aesthetic and practical considerations. In choosing colors, home furnishings and lighting, we bring a design sensibility that balances style, quality, livability and cost.

landscape design and advice

As complete-project developers, we bring together site planning, infrastructure development and environmentally sensitive landscape design. Always looking to preserve the natural beauty of the site and minimize impact, we manage a process that balances aesthetic objectives with civil engineering considerations and zoning requirements.

color consulting and paint

We provide color consulting as part of our interior design services and are the Hudson Valley’s only dealer of C2 paints. A kindred spirit to our other design offerings, C2 paints are designer-oriented line of paints and stains that have a more complex and nuanced color palate than other national brands and yet are the same in terms of price point and usability.


The Art of Building is a design-oriented construction and development firm. We are not licensed architects or engineers. We use third-party licensed architects and engineers whenever required or otherwise appropriate, and provide our clients with full transparency as to their involvement in the development process and their payment for these services.
