Michael Tripodi has practiced architecture for more than 30 years. His experience spans nearly every product type, but his primary focus has been multifamily housing, including a range of projects from affordable to market rate to student housing. In his design work, Michael strives to “solve the entire puzzle” for his clients by developing design solutions that encompass the full parameters of the project. His designs impact the visual, spatial and functional forces at work in the project while maintaining code, budget, construction method and accessibility requirements.
With a background that began in the construction industry, Michael brings a strong sense of constructability to his design work. He knows how buildings come together and has witnessed and worked on projects in the field, so translating that knowledge to paper and computer models comes naturally. This depth of experience directly benefits clients as Michael helps them blend design aspirations with construction realities.
Born and raised in Long Island, New York, Michael enjoys fishing, shooting, making furniture and playing guitar.
