We are a New York City-based design practice for architecture and urbanism founded in 2013 and led by Adam Frampton, AIA and Karolina Czeczek. Our projects span a range of different types and scales, from commercial interiors, to a single-family townhouse in Brooklyn, to an 84-unit senior affordable residential project in Brooklyn, to larger-scale urban planning, research, and speculation.
Our projects have been featured in the New Yorker, Architectural Digest, Interior Design, Frame, Azure, and the Architect’s Newspaper. In 2018, our firm was included in the Architect’s Newspaper AN 50, “which recognizes the fifty most innovative and influential architects and designers working in interiors today.” Only If has been also recognized as a winner of the 2018 AIANY New Practices New York, PIN-UP’s Magazine’s New Power Generation (2017), and the World Interior News’ 2016 Emerging Interior Practice of the Year.
We work closely and interactively with private clients, small businesses, non-profits, and developers to deliver innovative and detail-oriented designs. We provide full architectural and interior design services through the management and successful execution of our projects, while also achieving our client’s ambitions, schedules, and budgets. Approaching any project, our firm seeks to focus on the fundamental questions and potentials. The ambition of this process is to create clarity and distill simplicity within often-complex circumstances and constraints. Rather than imposing additional regimes of complexity, we believe the role of the designer is to envision simple gestures and forms that impose structure, coherence, and identity. We believe in the potential of simple shapes and geometries—like circles and squares—framing and shaping underlying uncertainties and complexities.
