Anthony A. Ciani started his business in 1981. His portfolio includes historic preservation and planning projects for public and private clients, and custom homes. Today, he continues his philosophy to design and build projects with a lasting quality, to achieve the dreams of his clients in a manner that also conserves cultural and natural resources. Many of his early designs utilized the principles of solar energy and recycled building materials; and now, he currently incorporates “sustainable technologies” in his projects, when it is feasible. The portfolio of his firm’s work over more than 30 years includes custom homes, interiors, landscapes, historic preservation and planning for public and private clients.
Tony collaborates with each client to create a design to enhance their personal lifestyle through the organization of the indoor and outdoor spaces, and to respond harmoniously with the surrounding setting. He plans projects to meet the functional and aesthetic needs of the owner, as well as, their budget and schedule. Local, State and Federal development criteria are incorporated into the design in the earliest phases to insure the project will simultaneously meet the owner’s and community’s goals. For those projects that will serve the public, Tony gathers the public’s input and participation throughout the design and implementation phases to seek a consensus of ideas.
In addition to working closely with each client, and depending upon the complexity of the project; an interdisciplinary team of consultants collaborate under Tony’s direction, to plan and carry out the site work, structure, mechanical and electrical systems, interiors and landscape. The same level of care is given during the construction phase by working with general contractors, or by Tony providing construction management services to complete the project.
