Lubrano Ciavarra Architects
For nearly twenty years, the Brooklyn-based studio of Lubrano Ciavarra Architects has offered a full range of Architectural and Design Services in the residential, commercial, cultural, educational, and hospitality sectors.
Our belief that the best architecture can benefit an entire community is reflected in each of our projects. At both the public and private scale, we strive for conceptual clarity in each detail to create meaning for the people who will ultimately occupy these spaces.
Our method of design and thinking is not one driven by personal agenda or ego, but rather is one based on collaboration and synthesis. Each new project begins with investigation – looking and listening. This open dialogue with clients allows Lubrano Ciavarra Architects the chance to synthesize needs, elucidate priorities and balance agendas to illuminate the essence of each project. While the firm’s portfolio may appear diverse from a stylistic standpoint, it is this variety that most clearly articulate their method of design – one geared specifically to the agenda and “vibe” of each individual client.
