Originally founded by William Long in 1977, William L. Long & Associates
Architects focused primarily on non-profit residential and commercial work. In 2016, William’s son, Matthew Long, R.A. joined the firm as a partner. As a result of this partnership, the firm was reorganized under a new name – Long Associates
Architects, PLLC, with the same focus as the previous entity.
Over the past 40 years, working with various nonprofits throughout New York State, our firm has designed over 400 group homes serving persons with developmental disabilities. Additionally, we have designed many Day Habilitation buildings and other supportive housing buildings, also for these same non-profit clients.
In 1995 we branched out and completed our first large scale residential apartment building. Since then we have designed and completed over 30 medium to large scale multifamily residential buildings. All of these buildings were designed for non-profit clients, with a mix of senior housing, subsidized housing and mixed use buildings.
We believe that our focus on accessibility, universal design and the non-profit client makes us the perfect choice for an NYS HCR funded project. Our last three
buildings utilized this funding avenue, and we have become well versed with their very particular design and energy efficient requirements.
