At the core of Stephen’s design approach is creating settings for life. He is interested in fabricating experience derived from the temporal quality of interior environments to illicit memory through materiality, richness, and local character. By understanding the way and the amount of time people inhabit a space, he reconciles functional necessities before layering aesthetic detail. His design work is intended as a distillation of cultural context and brand story telling in pursuit of thoughtful and forward leaning spaces.
With a career spanning coasts and typologies, Stephen has worked for nationally recognized firms like Studios Architecture and Handel Architects, after spending his formative years with the WRNS leadership. He also built and managed his own successful practice, focusing on residential and hospitality spaces. Stephen earned his Bachelor of Science in Art with an Architecture Concentration from Northeastern University and his Masters in Architecture from University of Pennsylvania. Stephen is the Studio Director of WRNS’ New York office.
