Thomas J. Mesuk Architect, LLC

Full Service Architectural and Interior Design Firm

The firm of Thomas J. Mesuk, Architect was founded on the belief that personal attention to each client was crucial to completing projects that meet or exceed each of our client’s expectations. Thomas has positioned the firm so that each client receives individual personal attention no matter the size or scope of the project. We are located in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey a few minutes west of New York City. We are registered with the State of New Jersey as an approved Small Business Enterprise and also listed with the Better Business Bureau.

Since the firm’s inception we have completed many projects ranging in size and scope including professional office space, commercial retail / restaurants, hospitality, high end custom residential, and municipal architecture. A common thread that runs thru every project is that the client’s needs are met for the present day but that the facility will serve both functionally and aesthetically for many years to come.
