Architect, Strategist and ‘Expert Eye’


Click monogram to return to home page

Judith DiMaio, FAIA, RIBA, is an architect of great talent who draws on her comprehensive historical understanding of architecture and planning to inform all her designs. DiMaio has mastered the art of visual literacy and applies this mastery to any architectural project. Her strategic mind and her expert "eye" have proven to be her greatest assets, seeing challenges in architecture not as problems, but as puzzles to be solved.     

DiMaio has been able, over the years, to share this expertise with individual architects, large firms, developers, and private clients looking for solutions to complicated problems. Her ability to see a project’s potential almost instantly, to understand the complicated concepts that are hindering its success and recommend resourceful and inventive alternatives to bring the vision of the architect or client to fruition and move the project forward, has proven to be invaluable.

DiMaio operates from multiple platforms derived from years in architecture and design. These platforms are built on skillful virtuosity, dazzling invention, and by taking limitations and design constraints and recasting them to produce architecturally ingenious solutions, and superior products.
