Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners is an award-winning, mid-sized firm with offices located in Lambertville, New Jersey and Newark, New Jersey. We serve the Northeast region, specifically New Jersey, Philadelphia, New York, and Connecticut.
Established in 1995, Minno & Wasko is committed to quality design, meticulous detailing, superior materials, and energy-efficiency. The firm continues to be recognized by its peers through numerous industry awards for excellence in architectural design and planning. Our projects stand out as appreciating assets for both the owners and the surrounding community.
The partnership of Minno & Wasko was formed in 1995 by David Minno and Gary Wasko, who had worked together as architects since 1983. Their complementary talents and expertise provided the groundwork for future expansion of the practice.
Since the company’s modest beginnings, the firm has grown to offer a more diverse and talented staff along with an expanded base to its leadership. In 2015, Minno & Wasko opened a branch office in Newark, NJ to better serve the New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut clientele. Although each professional brings a distinct design style and experience to the company, together individual abilities unite to further the company’s mission of creating meaningful multifamily spaces that ultimately benefit the bigger picture of community and environment.
Our commercial spaces seek to revitalize an area or neighborhood within a municipality in redevelopment zones. When designing we seek to respect and invigorate the wider community and environment, enlivening pedestrian traffic and reinvigorating the streetscape.
The firm specializes in the complex blend of multifamily and mixed-use spaces in urban, exurban, and suburban settings. Designs seamlessly incorporate desirable amenities, such as gyms, club rooms, and structured parking, while also creating livable spaces, or homes, for families.
The firm also uses its community-based focus to execute residential mid-rise and high rise, low rises, townhouses, and single family homes in a multitude of style conventions. These residential buildings can feature several amenities and reflect the surrounding area.
Each project receives the same full attention of all of the principals, with one taking the lead to oversee that project from design to construction completion.
