Polhemus & Coffin

Description

Henry M. Polhemus and Lewis Augustus Coffin, Jr formed the New York-based architectural firm of Polhemus & Coffin.

Together they contributed to a joint publication, Small French Buildings: The Architecture of Town and Country, with 183 plates of sketches, illustrations and photos, published by Charles Scribner & Sons in 1921.
The firm also designed some apartment buildings and office structures in Manhattan.

Their draftsman George Hickey established an independent practise designing houses with a French flavor, many of them modeled on sketches from Polhemus & Coffin’s Small French Buildings.

An archive of photographs of their residential work in the Northeast is among the Gottscho-Schleisner Collection (Library of Congress).
