Dubbeldam founded Archi-Tectonics in 1994, a WBE certified research-based design practice that works on multiple scales, spanning from cities and buildings to design objects. Aiming to achieve design efficiencies that express themselves in optimized modulations, her projects result in innovative structures and original shapes.

Archi-Tectonics is an expert in LEED design and is passionate about the use of smart systems and sustainable materials to create energy efficient, healthy living environments. Notable work includes the recently completed 33 Vestry in Lower Manhattan, the historic Brewster Building in Soho, and the iconic and much awarded 497 Greenwich Street, also in New York. Retail Projects include three Ports1961 stores in Paris, London, and Shanghai, and commercial work includes restaurants, art galleries, offices, and medical offices.
