Our Story

Eric Michaels, AIA is a lifelong Fairfield Country resident and a second-generation architect. He established Eric Michaels Architect, AIA in 1993 after apprenticing with his father. His work included residential, commercial, and retail projects throughout Fairfield County.

Sharon Ranney founded Ranney Design in 1993 after relocating to Fairfield from the mid-west.  Her design background in the visual arts including painting, drawing, and sculpture deeply influences the way she envisions space.

Eric Michaels Architects and Ranney Design merged in 2003 to form Ranney Michaels. After partnering on several projects, it became evident that their respective talents combined were producing even more successful results.  In 2006, Ranney Michaels expanded to include General Contracting as a way to ensure their clients received the best quality and services available throughout the entire project.  Today Ranney Michaels is a full-service Architecture, Design and Construction Company.

Eric Michaels

Growing up the son of an architect, Michaels was exposed to architecture, design and the building process from an early age.

It was this experience which led him to discover that the principles and order of Architecture and Music are synergistic. This realization led Michaels to focus his passion and creativity in the fields of Architecture and Construction.
