Pachano & Vollert is an architecture and design office based in New York and Massachusetts. P&V specializes in creating spaces that become instruments for discovery with an approach which is simultaneously exploratory, technical, and responsive to each project’s needs and environment. P&V's process reveals what is at first not apparent and exposes new possibilities.
Pachano & Vollert’s work extends over a range of projects and scales including buildings, interiors, and furniture. Current projects include: a renovation and addition to a single family house in the Berkshires, a historic townhouse renovation and addition in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, an apartment renovation on Central Park West in Manhattan and the development of a property in Bogota, Colombia that includes the restoration of a historic house and a 8 story ground up residential building.
