Gordon Kahn, Principal and Owner at Gordon Kahn and Associates, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in architecture.
Working in residential neighborhoods, mostly in New York and its suburbs for individuals and families, Mr. Kahn always had an interest in his field from a young age. His parents had built a house in a community that was laid out by Frank Lloyd Wright, known as Usonia, in Pleasantville, New York. He spent time there in a community of people who were bound together and was inspired by the experience, along with a love and affection for Wright’s work in general. In addition, Mr. Kahn became close with Aaron Resnick, who designed the house that his parents constructed. He became very interested in becoming an architect. There was nothing else he wanted to be.
Since 1990, Mr. Kahn has been the principal and owner at Gordan Kahn and Associates. His firm has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, New York Cottages & Gardens, and Country Living magazines. He has also been featured on such TV programs as WNBC-TV’s “Open House New York,” HGTV’s “Million Dollar Contractor,” and NBC-TV’s “George to the Rescue.” Notably, his famous clients include Tina Fey, Bruce Willis, Andy Cohen, Ryan Reynolds, and Kenny Marshall. He also maintains involvement with the American Institute of Architects since 1991. Prior to the start of his career, Mr. Kahn attended Columbia College, where he attained a Bachelor of Architecture in 1980. Currently, he is licensed to practice in the states of New York, New Jersey, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Colorado.
Active in his local community, Mr. Kahn served on the review committee for Landmarks West and contributed pro bono work for the Empire State Pride Agenda and the Harvey School. Moving forward, he would like to still be in private practice. There is no doubt about that. However, Mr. Kahn would also like to do a little teaching, but his practice is so busy that he currently does not have time.
