Laura Casale Architect, AIA, is a full service, architectural studio specializing in residential architecture with a classical style and sensibility. Laura's passion for historic architecture, combined with her strong design aesthetic, offers creative solutions to today’s modern programs.
The firm provides architecture, interior design, interior decoration and landscape design. As a small office, a client can expect personal, customized service. Each project is conceived through an in depth analysis of the client's program and site while maintaining an important focus on the art of building and craftsmanship. In addition to residential work, Laura has a broad spectrum of clients where her range of creativity and attention to detail encompasses commercial, retail and institutional projects.
A third generation designer, Laura holds a great commitment to fine workmanship and service. She earned her architectural degree at the Pratt Institute School of Architecture which included their Foreign Study program in Rome. Her professional programs of post graduate study include the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Institute of Classical Architecture in New York. Laura holds a certificate in Classical Architecture. Laura has also held adjunct faculty positions at Pratt Graduate School of Architecture and New York Institute of Technology.
Laura established her own practice 28 years ago in Manhasset in July of 1991, after 10 years of commercial work in New York City at such firms as Swanke Hayden Connell, Perkins+Will, and Butler Rogers Baskett. These experiences gave Laura a strong background in professionalism, design and, most importantly, client services and standards in practice.
