Geno Schiavo AIA, PP, LEED®AP

Geno leads with a solid expertise in architectural design that is grounded firmly in a philosophy of sustainable design and a respect for practical constructability.

A Leader in Sustainability
When he joined the firm in 1984, Geno brought what was, at that time, a rare expertise in the principles and practices of sustainable design. A published author of publications related to green design, he continues to lead K&A and the industry in the integration of practical sustainable design with sound architecture. His passion for attending to the details of building construction has contributed to an extensive portfolio of award-winning projects that encompass historic preservation, adaptive reuse, rehabilitation, and new construction related to residential, institutional, healthcare, and commercial projects.

A Focus on Energy
In addition to his role as a principal of K&A, leading the firm’s Asset Preservation and Community Healthcare design studios, Geno works closely with our Engineering team, ensuring that architectural considerations are appropriately addressed as we work with clients to implement energy-efficiency improvements for existing residential, commercial and institutional buildings.

Engaged with His Community
Outside of the office, Geno supports his community as a member of the Advisory Board for Catholic Partnership Schools in Camden, NJ. And most of all, he enjoys spending time with his family.
