Interview with Charles Diehl

Hosted by Nate Pfaff 


Charles Diehl got into architecture by way of physics and his interest in space exploration. He realized through that process that he was interested mostly in design and made the transition to architecture. He’s lived in Brooklyn for almost 20 years and recently bought a house in Bed-Stuy, which is where he currently lives with his family. His firm, Charles Diehl Architect, was established in 1999. Over the last few years, about 90% of his work is focused on renovation as opposed to new construction. The Brooklyn market has been primarily consumed by buying houses and renovating them, and that is where Charles’ expertise comes in.

He loves the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill area, which is where his office is located. Brooklyn Roast on Flushing Avenue is his favorite coffee spot and Chez Oskar on Malcolm X Boulevard is one of his favorite restaurants in all of New York City. He’s been getting the most calls from the Bed-Stuy/Bushwick area over the past few years, which have seen incredible change. He describes East New York as heating up and ripe for development because of the up zoning that could reshape its infrastructure.

He recommends people looking for an architect to ask lots of questions and talk to multiple architects. He recommends not hiring the cheapest person out there because they may end up costing you more money in the end by not anticipating complications or billing you for things that were not made clear to you in the beginning. The best way to reach Charles is through email at or by phone at 347-280-3026.
