Small Business Awards 2015: Gallin Beeler Design Studio Architects

The new, LEED-certified US headquarters for the Zwilling J.A. Henckels company in Pleasantville; a sleek house on Long Island’s Gardiners Bay with a second story built entirely of windows; an airy Sonoma wine production facility that uses barrels and bottles in its design: All are innovative, eco-friendly examples of Tarrytown-based Gallin Beeler Design Studio’s creativity and ingenuity that have—so far—garnered the firm some two dozen awards.

Since 2012, Gallin Beeler’s eight architects have been developing some of the most imaginative and environmentally sound LEED-certified buildings in the county and beyond. “Given the choice, I think it’s a no-brainer to try to be as sustainable and as efficient as possible,” says Michael Gallin, who runs the firm with Ray Beeler. “It’s critical in how we practice and in the buildings we try to produce.” The firm even utilizes digital designs and presentations as much as possible to cut down on unnecessary paper and printing for their projects.
Gallin, though, says their imaginative reuses of local sites are some of their proudest achievements.

He points to the old Grand Union distribution center in Mount Kisco, which was vacant and fronted by a large swamp. “We stabilized [it], and it’s now fully occupied,” he says. The spot, 333 North Bedford Road, now includes tenants like family entertainment complex Grand Prix New York. “We were able to turn it into something that’s an asset to Westchester, and that’s what we hope to continue to do,” Gallin says
