FF&P is kicking off 2019 with the official expansion of our presence in New York. The journey began in 2012 when Matt Kelley, Senior Designer at Frederick Fisher & Partners ventured to the big apple for a new life adventure. Fast forward several years and FF&P has finally settled into its perfect New York home - a charming light-drenched work-space filled with thoughtful, innovative designers. Their focus is to continue creating the spaces developed by our West-Coast roots that deliver a holistic, timeless, and sustainable experience. Help us welcome our East Coast team as they spread the FF&P mission to improve life through architecture.
