Tom Nugent has worked with Peter Pennoyer since the 1980s when they attended Columbia University together and has been a partner at Peter Pennoyer Architects since 2006.
Tom’s experience has made him an expert at directing complex projects that span new construction and the adaptive reuse and the renovation of historic structures. Three of the firm’s award-winning projects were supervised by Tom: Drumlin Hall, a new Federal style villa in Dutchess County; the interior reconstruction and exterior restoration of an Italianate row house in the Greenwich Village Historic District; and the reconstruction of a brownstone in the Upper East Side Historic District.
In addition to residential projects, Tom has led teams in renovation and preservation projects for institutional and commercial commissions that include the redesign of the Metropolitan Opera Club at Lincoln Center and the 1991 renovation and adaptive reuse of The Mark Hotel in New York City. His renovation projects for historic clubhouses on the Upper East Side of Manhattan demonstrate his commitment to preserving the integrity of historic buildings while also reinventing them to embrace modern standards.
Tom’s recent work includes the restoration and renovation of a historic house in Palm Beach and the renovation of a penthouse duplex in the Flatiron District of New York City, a technically challenging project that has required the development of new strategies for the preservation of structures, such as the building’s cupola, that were neglected and in peril.
Tom graduated from Columbia University, is a registered architect in the State of New York and a member of the American Institute of Architects.
