Prior to starting his own design studio, Joe spent over 3 years in the landscape architecture division at R.S. Granoff Architects, P.C., a leading architectural firm in Greenwich, CT. He collaborated with teams of architects and landscape architects and gained an appreciation for the parallels that exist between the two. With detailed and complex projects, communication among the teams was critical to correctly fuse and solidify a design vision. Working at Granoff established Joe’s strong foundation of communication, design skills and key relationships with local contractors, all of which are of paramount importance for any design project.
Before Granoff Architects, Joe spent over 4 years with Daniel S. Natchez and Associates, an International Environmental Waterfront Design Consulting Company that specializes in marina designs, marina resorts and waterfront projects. Joe developed conceptual master plans for both in-water marina facilities and associated upland areas. He also focused on complete site design and permitting for high end waterfront residential projects in Long Island, Southern Westchester county and Southern Fairfield county.
Joe is a certified landscape architect in the State of Connecticut. He graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Planning and Design with a Specialization in Landscape Architecture. In addition to a demanding curriculum, Joe was the founder and president of the Rutgers University Men’s Club Lacrosse team. He owes a thank you to the game of golf. At an early age Joe started sketching and drawing golf courses, which ultimately led to the profession of landscape architecture. Joe can still be found on the links regularly (and even has a hole in one!) and also enjoys skiing, mountain biking and hiking. Graphic design is also a great interest and his logo, business cards, and website are designed in house.
Joe lives in Larchmont, NY.
