Wallant Architecture has been creating original residential and commercial designs since 1989, when Scott Wallant first hung up his shingle in Albany, New York. Wallant received a thorough grounding in Classical Style architecture, in that exciting period of historical rediscovery that took place in the 1970's. Since then he's also brought elements of Craftsman, Modern, Timber and other styles to the design table, as appropriate for the project and client.
Wallant, a member of the American Institute of Architects, graduated from Yale University in 1974 and received a Master of Architecture degree from the Yale School of Architecture in 1978. After a stint as an intern architect working in New York City for the internationally renowned Philip Johnson, he spent five years as a designer and project manager on projects set amidst some of the world's most exclusive real estate in Fairfield County, Connecticut.
In Albany, Wallant Architecture has become well known for creative design, careful budgeting and the highest level of production drawings. Wallant's rigorous drawings protect the client and help to ensure that the built form reflects the original design inspiration. Since 1997, the Wallant Architecture staff has been led by Associate and Project Manager Stephen Janenka (RPI Bachelor of Architecture,1982). A timber frame designer and master builder until joining Wallant Architecture over 20 years ago, Mr. Janenka brings a deep knowledge of construction craft and structural rigor to his design and project administration. As a former builder, Mr. Janenka also understands the value of working interactively with contractors to help keep budgets on track.
Wallant Architecture's commercial, religious and residential designs have appeared on the covers of Builder Magazine and Hudson Valley Magazine and have received design awards from the American Institute of Architects.
