MN is an architecture firm creating spaces that shape and define culture. Our New York City-based team is led by individuals united not only by our diverse backgrounds and perspectives but an optimistic commitment to designing spaces for the many.

MN seeks to redefine access to exceptional design. From the most public cultural institutions to private homes, our work prioritizes the experience of all users of a space. These excellent experiences are driven by precise, pragmatic and daring decisions — regardless of project size or type.

Diverse perspectives are pivotal to our work, and we partner with clients who share our belief that great design should not be elusive nor exclusive. For us, architecture is a collaborative effort between those who create and those who experience. We design for where those moments meet.

We actively believe that entry into—and longevity in—architecture must be accessible to all.

Modellus Novus is committed to increasing access to the field of architecture to people from different backgrounds, perspectives and geographies. We pay fair wages, create a work environment and culture that prioritizes support through management, development and training, and are open to candidates who do not have the classic architecture background or come from the same handful of noted architecture schools.

We care deeply about our team. They are not overworked, underpaid nor underappreciated. We commit to a business model and ethics that are fair, laying the groundwork to address economic parity and quality of life.

We have no unpaid or underpaid positions—inclusive of interns brought in while still completing academic studies—and our pay scale calculator allows us to base all compensation on measurable and objective data to protect against pay discrimination based on gender, race, or other protected factors.

These commitments make for better client relationships, better teams and better work. The firm has had nearly no turnover in its eight years.
