Lou Savenelli

As a seasoned and skilled architect, Lou has been creating inventive and imaginative designs that also fit into the budget and needs of our clients.  Both Lou and Richard have been working together for more than 30 years.  Lou has excellent visual awareness and is sensitive to detail.  He has been integrally involved in the preparation of the documents for the construction of large projects, including a new campus for Yale University in Singapore and a utility power plant at the University of Connecticut.  All of his designs take into account the long-term impact projects may have on the environment and community. Lou is skilled in drafting designs that foster sustainability after construction.  Lou is a life-long resident of Connecticut and feels strongly about “doing no harm” when it comes to leaving a lasting architectural creation in the landscape, whether it is a house or a 750,000 sf college campus.  

 

Lou graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in 1982; he meets regularly with clients to go over design details, negotiates materials and pricing with contractors, makes site visits to inspect the construction, and constantly communicates with clients to keep them informed.
