Malachi Connolly Design Studio strives to bring architectural meaning to places where everyday life occurs, regardless of project size or budget. We value careful consideration of place, program and the willingness to experiment, and we hope to create a collaborative exchange in which ideas can emerge and shape the character of a project, from inception to completion. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Malachi Connolly Design Studio works on residential, commercial and restoration projects, providing design services while working closely with clients to achieve their goals.
Malachi Connolly, a native of Massachusetts, is a graduate of Pratt Institute and has been living in New York for the past twenty years, working as an architect, filmmaker and preservationist. He has worked for Snohetta as a team member on the World Trade Center Memorial Museum Pavilion and for Handel Architects as a project architect on the new Perez Art Museum by Herzog and de Meuron. As President of the Board of the Cape Cod Modern House Trust, he has been instrumental in the restoration of two important modern houses in the National Seashore: the Hatch Cottage, the Weidlinger House, both of which are home to educational tours and an emerging artist-in-residency program. Malachi’s documentary film, "Built on Narrow Land," chronicled the fate of modern architecture on outer Cape Cod. The film was the recipient of a Graham Foundation Grant and has screened at film festivals in New York, Los Angeles, Provincetown, Copenhagen, Slovenia, Seoul, Korea, Milan and New Zealand.
Malachi has lectured on Cape Cod Modern Architecture at Cooper Union, CUNY, Pratt Institute, the Corcoran School of Art and The Getty Center in Los Angeles.
