The design firm of Stephen Miller Siegel Architects (SMSA) is setting new industry standards in the world of Interior Design and Architecture. The design firm, established in 1992 quickly earned a prestigious reputation for its skillful execution of both Commercial and Residential projects.

As a result, clients are provided with work that effortlessly integrates both artistic disciplines.
SMSA has designed and executed numerous Residential projects for a prominent private clientele that include Barry Diller, Stephen Schwarzman, George Stephanopoulos, Renee Zellweger, Carly Simon, Libby and Donald Fagen and Mr. and Mrs. Paul Cejas, the former U.S. Ambassador to Belgium.
