Inspired by the antiquity of Long Island’s Gold Coast, Michael Jay Wallin is devoted to promoting architectural integrity and historical correctness in residential design.
Before founding his own boutique architectural firm in 1992, Michael spent 4 years serving in the U.S. army stationed in Germany as a cartographer. Having developed an appreciation for technical drawing, Michael returned to the U.S subsequently earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from NYIT. Post education and licensure, Michael dedicated himself for 15 years to honing his skills at some of Long Island’s top residential design-build firms.
Subscribing to the Greek philosophy of Pythagoras, whereby architecture is based on symmetry and proportions and beauty a product of rational order and harmonious proportion, Michael’s artistic vision translates to designs that are historically “correct” and “classically beautiful.” Michael’s strict adherence to the classical tenets of beauty results in both pleasing aesthetics and rational functionality in everyday living spaces. Having created hundreds of high-end, homes, Michael continues to approach each project as a singular and unique endeavor that conveys directly to the specific wishes of his clients. As his clients will attest, Michael Jay Wallin creates homes that communicate a harmony of modern amenities and traditional architectural values.
After more than 30 years of commitment to the art of residential architecture, Michael Jay Wallin has been recognized for his achievements in outstanding residential design with the 2015 Archi Award and various print publications. His work can be found in Hollywood feature films like ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ and television dramas such as ‘Gotham.’ Beyond accolades and notoriety, Michael continues to deliver the best and most artistically correct designs with the understanding that he creates each home first and foremost to satisfy the whimsy of his esteemed clients.
