Kevin Wolfe is trained as an architect and a landscape architect and has been practicing both disciplines since 1988. He has been involved with the design and planning of a number of important civic projects and parks in New York City and its suburbs, as well as numerous private landscapes and residences across the country. He is a licensed architect in the State of New York and the State of New Jersey.
Kevin is known for his expertise in the renovation of historic buildings and gardens for contemporary uses, for additions to historic buildings and the design of new buildings in New York City's designated historic districts. Active in the city's historic preservation movement, he serves as an adviser to the Historic Districts Council and as a member of the Preservation Committee of the Municipal Arts Society. As co-founder of the Douglaston & Little Neck Historical Society, he spearheaded the drive to preserve Douglas Manor in Queens, an enclave of early 20th century houses that became New York City's 70th historic district in 1997. He has had more than 40 projects in the Douglaston Historic district approved by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Before opening his own practice in 1997, Kevin worked for the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, where he designed the $2.4 million Marine Park Environmental Center in Brooklyn, which opened to great acclaim in 2000. He also served as project architect for the partial restoration of the Bartow-Pell Mansion in the Bronx, the King Mansion in Queens and the Dyckman Farm House Museum in Manhattan. For the Randall’s Island Sports Foundation, a public-private partnership in Manhattan, he was the project architect for the planning of new sports facilities as well as the renovation and reconstruction of the island’s 400-acre park.
Kevin has worked at several prestigious architecture and landscape architecture firms in New York, including Rafael Vinoly Architects, Fox & Fowle Architects, Kohn Pedersen & Fox Interior Architects, M. Paul Friedberg & Partners, and Weintraub & diDomenico. He is presently teaching Historic Preservation in the Masters program at The Pratt Institute, and has taught architecture at the New York Institute of Technology and landscape design at The City College of New York. In addition, he has served as a guest critic for the architecture schools at Yale University, Columbia University, and the New York Institute of Technology.
A former journalist, Kevin regularly contributes articles about architecture, interior design, landscape design and historic preservation to magazines including Garden Design, Metropolis, House Beautiful, Colonial Homes, and Traditional Home. His essays on architecture and landscape design have been featured in several books, including Long Island's Great Estates, 1860-1940, published in 1997 for The Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities. He has also written a book, This Salubrious Spot—100 Years at Douglas Manor, published in 2007 by the Douglas Manor Association.

With more than two decades of experience as an interior designer, Pam Broderick is a seasoned professional who is known for her ability to translate clients’ tastes and lifestyles into beautiful and livable interiors at every budget level, whether it’s furnishing a whole house or redesigning one room.
Pam first trained with Carol Hayden of the renowned New York interior design firm Hayden Perowne, and later spent many years as an interior designer with Windham House, an antiques and home furnishings purveyor in Greenvale, New York. In 2007, she formed an association with architect Kevin Wolfe where her recent projects have included the Hur Residence in Douglas Manor, and the Palladino Residence in Montauk.
Pam’s comprehensive background in design includes training as a fine arts painter at Manhattan’s Art Student’s League and School of Visual Arts; designing fabrics for Boris Kroll; a stint as a cabinetry designer for a custom-cabinet manufacturer in Manhattan; and an assignment to furnish model apartments in Manhattan for a high-end condominium developer, which she successfully accomplished on a tight budget and timeframe.
During her tenure at Windham House, where she ran both the retail business and interior design practice, she broadened her knowledge of antiques and honed her expertise in efficiently bringing projects in on time and within budget. Her years in retail not only taught her the fine points of working with vendors, but also furthered her knowledge of interior-design resources. Her early studies in fine arts painting and her work in textile design have also given her a keen eye for color, fabrics and materials.
Unlike many interior designers who often lose interest after the bulk of the project is completed, Pam’s special talent for selecting accessories results in rooms with a finished, lived-in look. She is sought after because her interiors are always unique, always have a natural feel and never have that over-designed “signature” look that screams “decorator.”
Pam holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design from the New York Fashion Institute of Technology.
