Iva comes from a family ancestrally entrenched in the construction industry. She expected to branch out after her undergraduate degrees in Art History, Italian Language and Management, however, a special interest in Preservation drew her back into the fold to follow her mother’s footsteps into Architecture; thus she began her career working at a high-end residential practice on Long Island's Gold Coast. Upon completion of her Master of Architecture degree from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for several years in Washington DC for a large firm responsible for a diverse portfolio from high-end residential to civic performance halls. Iva is an interdisciplinary designer who works with you collaboratively to provide an integrated and cohesive approach to architecture and interior design.
