History

Klesse Architects AIA is an award-winning design firm based in Short Hills, New Jersey. The firm, which began in 1994, specializes in residential architecture, boutique corporate interiors and specialty restaurants.

Since its foundation, the firm has specialized in designing new homes, small to large additions for existing homes, while giving careful attention to details on every project.

Klesse Architects is committed to tailoring design solutions that meet the needs of our clients. Klesse has always believed the initial time spent in discussion between architect and client is quite valuable. It is at this early touch point where much is learned about needs and expectations. While the firm is generous with ideas, the firm also realizes listening at this point is an art…an art that is practiced carefully.

A talented design and technical staff prides itself on meticulous attention to detail. The technical backgrounds of staff ensures integrity of design thoughout the construction phase (see section titled Phases).
