April 1, 2013 – New York, NY – Dennis Wedlick AIA, principal and founder of the firm that bears his name, is pleased to announce that the practice—which has specialties in architecture, interiors, landscape, and master planning, and with offices in Manhattan and Hudson, New York—will change its name. Starting April 15, 2013, the firm will be known as BarlisWedlick Architects LLC. The new name recognizes the leadership role of Alan Barlis AIA, who became Wedlick’s partner in the company in 2007. Under the collaborative leadership of Barlis and Wedlick the firm has grown, developing new areas of expertise and expanding its client base. The name change comes as the firm prepares to mark two significant milestones: its 20th anniversary and the spring 2013 release of a book co-authored by the two, Classic & Modern: Signature Styles (www.classicmodernsignaturestyles.com). A new website for the firm is now live at www.barliswedlick.com.
“All of us—his colleagues and clients—have benefited from Alan’s talent, vision, and energy,” said Wedlick. “He has always played a decisive role in defining our approach and it’s a pleasure to officially recognize his contribution in our new name.”
Wedlick founded the firm in 1993 after a 12-tenure in Philip Johnson’s office. From the very start, he set out to build a client-focused practice dedicated to creating clients’ dream homes—houses ideally-suited to their setting, site, and especially the preferences and quirks of their future inhabitants. Dennis Wedlick Architect has enjoyed great success, garnering accolades in the press and becoming a respected advocate in the fields of residential architecture and energy-efficient building standards. Wedlick is the author of several books and has taught at the University of Pennsylvania, Parsons, and the City University of New York (CUNY).
