Why We Love This

New Old House Journal observes: "Murray has a reputation for refined and gracious designs and renovations of fashionable residences--from grand country estates to New York City apartments and townhouses." He is particularly adept at interpreting his clients' dreams into stunning built reality. Murray designs residences that imbue their occupants with a refined sense of well being. Through the presentation of fifteen country and city residences, Murray reveals an extraordinary mastery of the classical vocabulary and a sensitivity to proportion and scale. Within that framework Murray inserts the comforts of contemporary living in a way that is seamless and completely logical. A unique aspect of his process is the traditional Beaux-Arts drawing known as the Analytique, which brings together all of the significant elements of a design in a harmonious and balanced whole.
