AKA is well organized, good at communication, and we have a great sense of style!
We offer a complete suite of services from concept to completion: design visioning, drawings, product selection, filing, and construction supervision.
We create projects that emphasize more Light, more Views, more Storage, all with good spatial flow.
We are inspired and informed by the context and competing program needs.
Our solutions surpass the original requirements: layers of complexity, subtlety, and utility are revealed with use.
Allegra is a licensed architect with over 15 years of design and construction experience in and around New York City.
Before starting her own practice Allegra worked at a series of progressively larger firms doing innovative work, including work on a solar home in the Catskills, renovations of rental-to-coop 10-40 unit buildings in Harlem, residential and corporate renovations, and an expansion of JFK airport for Delta.
Through her consulting work Allegra has developed specialties in lighting and inter-disciplinary branding and design. She teaches to stay on the cutting edge of design and technology and continues her education in sustainable design as an active member of the AIA.
Allegra's latest innovations are an emphasis on new apartment renovation typologies, and a focus on her "Light + Views + Storage" design strategy in her firms renovation.
Allegra became a registered architect in the State of New York in 2000.
