Chris has always sought to make the urban environment a richer place through his architecture and interiors practice. 

Chris studied at University College’s Bartlett in London. From there he received a Master’s in Architecture from the University of Edinburgh and went on to work for Skidmore Owings and Merrill Architects, better known as SOM, in the London, Washington DC, and New York offices. Chris soon set his sights on opening his own practice, Fogarty Finger, in 2003 with just two employees.

In the nearly 20 years since, Chris’s firm has flourished, playing a pioneering role in the multifamily housing realm, joining forces with the Interiors Division to create top-to-bottom residential and commercial transformations, and recently expanding into the Boston and Atlanta markets, while counting a total of 127 diverse employees among its ranks.

Two of the firm’s major projects—141 Willoughby, an office tower in downtown Brooklyn, and Astoria West, the largest residential development ever built along Astoria’s burgeoning waterfront, both topped out in recent months. While construction is underway on The Nova, a striking residential tower in Long Island City completing in September. Meanwhile, The Lively, which adds 180 luxury residential units to Jersey City’s growing downtown district, as well as ground-level commercial space and a new performing arts center, nabbed an AIA NJ award for its impressive design. 

Earlier in 2021, The Dime, a live-work-play building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn opened its doors. And on the boards, in the borough’s Gowanus neighborhood, are projects, including the 600,000-square-foot building at 300 Nevins, that reflect the new zoning legislation that recently occurred in the city. Collectively, these projects capture Fogarty Finger’s dominance in the outer-boroughs of New York City as an architecture and interior design firm shaping the cityscape.
