About 

I’m a design oriented architect and interior designer who has over 18 years of professional experience focused in the areas of high-end residential, and luxury retail construction as a designer and project manager. My residential projects have been of the high-end, single-family custom variety and have involved design and project management from foundation details on through all aspects of the interiors. I have worked on projects ranging from kitchen renovations, to major additions and ground-up single family residences, and multi-structure estates.

My retail/branded environment projects have been of the free-standing variety for major retailers of luxury goods, primarily DKNY where I was their head designer and project manager for international free standing stores. This work additionally included art direction, fixture, furniture, lighting, and hardware design.

I have additional experience in historic preservation, forensic reconstruction, corporate interiors, landscape design, public works, high-rise construction, signage and graphic design.

Along the way I have become well familiar with producing quality and innovative design solutions in both traditional and contemporary styles, have assumed primary responsibilities for maintaining relationships for a demanding set of clientele and consultants and have always felt comfortable in that role.

Additionally, I have a on-line portfolio which contains a more complete set of project examples as well as additional professional information. http://ronmack.portfoliobox.me. Please feel free to visit and have a look.
