While continuing his practice in Europe, Thoerner opened an office in NYC in 1988 to service clients with a strong international presence. Overseeing a staff of architects, interior designers and product designers, his fresh and creative work immediately brought recognition, winning the Interior Design Magazine award for best showroom design Thoerner’s first year in the States.
After summering in the Hamptons for many years, Thoerner relocated with his family to Sagaponack in 2006 and began concentrating on residential projects. Most rewarding has been the close relationships he has forged with his clients and helping them realize their vision into reality.
Bringing to his work a European design sensibility and a multi-disciplinary approach, Thoerner has worked on projects in NYC and throughout the Hamptons, from a penthouse gut renovation in the Time Warner Center to an 8,000+ sq. foot new home underway in the Estate Section of Southampton.
In addition to his creative work, Thoerner has extensive experience acting as an owner’s representative, construction manager and in successfully navigating the complex local approval process. Many of his clients live far from the east coast. Thoerner has become a go-to name for those embarking on building projects from afar.
MTD Group is capable of handling complex projects, but small enough so that Thoerner himself is engaged with each client from start to successful finish.
