Robert Farrell earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute in New York City. He also attended The National Academy of Design where he studied the classical orders as a means of understanding the use of proportional language systems. Currently he is studying Botany at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in the certificate program.
Art and architectural history have always been passionate interests and an important influence on his design work. Whether contemporary or traditional, he believes successful design schemes should have a sense of history as well as sensitivity to contemporary life. This discourse brings depth and vitality to his work.
Thoughtful and carefully conceived, each project shows a keen understanding of detail and materials. An appreciation of textile, craft and color informs every project.
A client’s lifestyle and budget are important considerations to create a concept that is personal and unique.
Over the years Robert’s professional life has included a broad range of opportunities, from the renovation of a Brooklyn Heights Townhouse, apartments in New York City, residences in Weschester, Connecticut and a Designer Show-Houses for House and Garden Magazine.
Before establishing an independent practice Robert worked with offices such as Oliver Cope Architects, Baranovich Architects, Mark Hampton Inc., and Bunny Williams to name a few. His rich experience led to establishing his own private practice in 2004 with the goal of combining architectural and interior design.
