Steven J. Dodds

Steven Dodds, a Senior Architect at Phinney Design Group, is a licensed architect, AIA member and LEED Accredited Professional with over 20 years of experience in architectural design and project & construction management. He is accustomed to working on projects with dense and unusual programs, large consultant teams and complex regulatory environments. He has a wealth of experience working closely with clients and team members in schematic programming, design development and construction documentation for a wide variety of project types, including multifamily residential, education & child care and religious & cultural institutions.

Always open to a challenge, Steven is no stranger to unconventional programs. He has worked on two new buildings that were to be erected over existing occupied buildings and installed twelve new bells in the tower of a landmark New York City church. He has prepared designs for Jewish ritual baths, a floating boathouse, a new high security home for a world class coin collection and one of the first Passive House multi-family buildings in Manhattan.

Beyond the office, Steven has written two books and several magazine articles focusing on tools and DIY projects. He has also served as president and treasurer of a 100 year old residential coop in New York City, shepherding the building through a major exterior restoration.
