About Us

Creative, Resourceful, Responsive Design

We are a small office providing architectural design service for a broad spectrum of clients including residential, commercial and institutional projects. The firm was set up in Pittsburgh in the second half of 2010 to reflect the significant body of work, skills, experience that Carmine Carapella has developed in the field of traditional architecture, urban planning and preservation over the past 15 years. Born in Italy and educated in Rome and USA, Carmine Carapella strives to bring Italian design quality to each and every project. The company’s philosophy is simply superior quality design: creative, resourceful, responsive design that blends sophisticated Classical European beauty with American tradition.
