Nils Luderowski is best defined as specializing in residential architecture and design in an Adirondack vernacular. His full-service studio offers traditional architectural services including site planning, interior design, furniture design and custom artisan work.

His formative years were spent in Stockholm, Sweden, where he studied mathematics, interior architecture and furniture design.
While in Europe he traveled extensively, paying particular attention to the traditional wood architecture of Northern & Central Europe,
specifically that of Scandinavia and Switzerland. He concluded his formal education at the noted Pratt Institute of Art & Design in Brooklyn, NY.

From 1975 to1996, Nils ran a design studio in New York City. He taught Introduction to Design for 10 years at Parsons School of Design.

In the mid 1990’s Nils settled in Keene, in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Mountains where he lives with his family
in an 1825 Federal Style farmhouse.

Nils pioneered the “New Adirondack Style” of architecture, an authentic blend of Shingle, Craftsman, Prairie and regional expressions,
while also incorporating modern living requirements and current technology. His structures thoughtfully address natural site features and are carefully scaled. They are rich in texture, color, and have a close relationship with the natural landscape — becoming part of the landscape itself.

Nils Luderowski’s work can be found dotting the many lakes, rivers and mountains throughout the central Adirondacks. Past work includes new homes, renovations, additions, restoration, adaptive reuse, and historical renovation. He is a registered Architect licensed in New York State and a member of The American Institute of Architects (AIA). His office is located in Keene Valley, New York, in the Adirondack State Park, right next to the Noonmark Diner!

“I hate to say it, but it is hard to find good new architecture here in the Adirondacks, and Nils is an exception,” said architectural historian Richard Longstreth. “I hope he becomes better known. His work is of very high caliber, thorough and in the spirit of freedom, invention and whimsicality that
has characterized much of the work in this region for over a century-and-a-half. It’s contemporary yet fits right in - very much at home in this part of the world. I’m glad for this exhibit’s introducing more people to his work. I would like to see a book about his work to help spread the word that the
Adirondacks is a place that is contrary to style, contrary to convention, and is a place where the imagination can really run wild.”
