Rosamund Young was born and raised in South Africa, studied at the University of Cape Town and graduated with a Masters degree in Architecture. She moved to New York in 1986 and worked for Robert A.M. Stern Architects where she developed a passion for American residential architecture and the rich tradition of diverse styles. In 1994 she opened her own practice and has since designed over 100 projects in the New York area.
Each project poses a different set of challenges and solutions but the design approach remains the same for all: to design for a timeless expression of style and craftsmanship, inspired by the site context, reflective of the neighborhood character and responsive to the clients' personal style and functional needs.
The design is developed through careful detailing and rigorous execution. Rosamund offers a highly personal hands-on service to ensure seamless integration of the architecture and the interior finishes. She is committed to defining each client's style through presentation of intelligent solutions, fresh interpretations and consistent choices that build a story.
