Bill Brockschmidt and Courtney Coleman bring to their work a focus on traditional detailing, proportion, materials, and craftsmanship in both architectural elements and in furnishings. Whether designing a stylish library in a Park Avenue duplex or specifying traditional slipcover details for a Vieux Carre carriage house, the two emphasize appropriateness and clarity in their work, bringing a modern sensibility to historical references. The two formed Brockschmidt & Coleman, LLC, in February of 2001. From their offices in the Flatiron District of Manhattan and in the Garden District of New Orleans, their teams manage projects in New York and the Northeast, the Mid-Atlantic, and throughout the South, as well as Bermuda, Sicily, and Croatia. Their work has been featured in Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, Quest, Period Homes, The Classicist, The New York Observer, and on HGTV.
Brockschmidt & Coleman are included in Elle Decor’s A-List as well as House Beautiful's Next Wave Network. They have lectured at Winterthur, The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Zone Chelsea, and the University of Notre Dame. Courtney received her degree in architecture from Mississippi State University. She serves on the Board of Directors of The Decorators Club, where she founded the Centennial Design Competition for New York City area design students. Bill received degrees in architecture from the University of Virginia and the University of Illinois at Chicago. He initiated the travel programs for the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art and remains active in the travel committee.
