Bill Brockschmidt and Courtney Coleman bring to their work a focus on traditional detailing, proportion, materials, and craftsmanship in both architectural elements and in furnishings. Whether designing a stylish library in a Park Avenue duplex or specifying intricate upholstery details for a 17th century wing chair for a Pennsylvania horse farm, the two emphasize appropriateness and clarity in their work, bringing a modern sensibility to historical references.
Following his architectural studies at the University of Virginia and the University of Illinois at Chicago, Bill worked for several years as an architect in the office of Eric J. Smith in New York. Courtney studied architecture at Mississippi State University, and worked as an architect with Ferguson, Shamamian & Rattner Architects, then as a designer with David Easton, Inc. The two formed Brockschmidt & Coleman, LLC in February of 2001. From their office in the antiques district of Tribeca in Manhattan, a staff of five manages projects ranging in budget to $4,000,000. Their work has been featured in House Beautiful, Quest, Period Home, The Classicist, and on the HGTV television program “Small Space, Big Style.”
Bill and Courtney both serve as Fellows of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America, which promotes modern classicism in architecture and the allied arts. Bill, as Director of Travel Programs, organizes tours such as the Houses of David Adler in Lake Forest, IL, and a drawing tour of Sicily. Courtney, as Director of Public Programs, plans salons and lectures featuring leading architects and designers including Robert A.M. Stern, Albert Hadley, Bunny Williams, and Michael Graves.
