Architecture and Design is a collaborative process, with the aim of adding beauty to the world. We find inspiration through the process of discovery of ideas, the complexity of the natural environment and potential of technology.
The studio was created out of a desire to create a better built environment through an understanding of materiality, details and the quality of physical experiences. Rooted in a deep understanding of construction methodologies, fabrication and design, the studio focuses on architecture that is driven by the beauty of building and quality.
The studio was founded by Ramona Albert, who is a Romanian born architect and designer.
As a graduate of the Harvard School of Design she has always aimed at creating great buildings by combining design with the art of craft. She brings to the field of architecture a fresh outlook through a ten year career path that interlaces a high design sensibility with hands on construction field experience, specializing in complex detailing, fabrication and exterior envelope systems.
Prior to starting the studio, Ramona has gained her experience at Tishman Construction, Front Inc, and SOM. At Tishman, she successfully managed the construction of the facade for 5 Manhattan West, and at Front Inc. she oversaw various projects as a consultant including the Luis Vuitton Singapore facade, and managed the design and construction for the Lincoln Square Synagogue on the upper west side of Manhattan.
