Aurell Garcia Architects was founded in 2018 by architects Walter Aurell and Margaret Garcia. Based in Orangeburg, NY, we are an award-winning architecture firm with a commitment to architecture that enhances a sense of place, and provides beauty, comfort and thoughtful functionality. We work throughout Upstate New York, the Hudson Valley, Metropolitan New York City, and New England.

After decades designing buildings utilizing the principles of passive solar and other sustainable building technologies, green design is integral to our firm’s architectural culture.

Our combined portfolio, our body of work, reflects the care, rigor and close attention to scale and detail that we bring to every project. Clients tell us that they appreciate the creativity and enthusiasm that we bring to the design process. Our intention is to always foster a collaborative relationship between our clients, the architectural team and the builder. See our portfolio, click here.

Aurell Garcia Architects is the successor firm to CPLA Architects, established in 1894 by noted Hudson Valley/ NYC architects Marshall Emery and Henry Emery.
