PS Design

We are a husband and wife team who share an aesthetic vision and an innovative approach to our work.  We emphasize the clean simple lines of modern design, using materials that enhance the texture and warmth of the space. We are particularly interested in shaping interior spaces to improve the way the spaces are used and experienced. We strive to tailor our work to individual clients.

Chris Stachecki

Chris Stachecki received his architectural degree (B. Arch), from Cornell University in 1986.  He has been designing and building commercial and residential projects in New York City since 1993. Before that he worked in architectural offices, notably Antoine Predock of New Mexico and the New York firm Transbuilding.

As a teenager, Chris worked as a carpenter in his grandfather’s contracting business, building houses in Southampton Long Island.  His detailing skills grew out of this combination of architectural design and hands-on woodworking. He is highly creative and innovative in incorporating the mechanical aspects of building into the aesthetic product.
