Agencie is an architecture and engineering studio that designs inventive buildings. We work with private clients, leading brands and emerging businesses to a create meaningful environments that matter to people.
Agencie is unique in that both engineers and architects are involved through the entire life of a project. This truly collaborative relationship results in ingeniously successful buildings. We push the boundary between physics and art. Our designers are driven by an uncompromising commitment to bring compelling spaces and immersive atmospheres to life.
Being a small studio, we are fast, flexible and resourceful. We don’t have a singular, proprietary process; we adapt to the unique needs, history and culture of each client. This allows us to build close, long-term relationships with our clients.
Agencie was founded in 2007 by Andres Cortes and Sarrah Khan. Andres and Sarrah’s passion for design was honed while studying architecture and civil engineering at the prestigious Columbia University. A career-long teacher, Sarrah has been adjunct faculty at Yale University, Georgia-Tech and Columbia. Andres and Sarrah work side-by-side with our clients in every project we take on.
