About

Pickard Chilton has distinguished itself as one of the most highly regarded international architecture studios. Applying a potent mix of idealism and pragmatism, creativity and rigor, the principals and their talented teams work closely with clients to meet aspirations that are both deeply felt and objectively measurable.

The New Haven, Connecticut-based, 50-person studio, founded in 1997, provides design services to public and private sector clients in North and South America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.  The studio is large enough to be entrusted with highly competitive projects of landmark scale yet small enough to offer visionary clients the gratifying experience of shared engagement in the realization of their ambitious goals.

All aspects of the studio’s work are animated by the belief in the transformative power of research-driven design to deliver high-performance buildings that create measureable value for clients, produce an engaging and productive workplace and build better communities.

The studio practices exclusively as a Design Architect and collaborates with experienced Executive Architects to meet the unique needs of each client. This practice model ensures that clients have access to the most highly qualified professionals for all aspects of design, project management, building technology, and construction administration. 

Pickard Chilton’s commitment to sustainable design has resulted in LEED-Gold and Platinum certification of nearly 50 million square feet of the studio’s commercial, and institutional buildings since 2006.
