The work of architect George Clemens, A.I.A, is carefully based on context and respects the craft of building. Though a Cleveland native and graduate of Heights High school in 1981, he has lived on both coasts after attending Williams College (B Arts ’86). George brings architectural training from Yale University (M Arch ’93) and a design background drawing on experience from top architectural firms in New Haven, San Francisco, and Cleveland. He has built as well as designed houses since the early 1980s.
Rebecca actively engages her clients to find designs that satisfy both aesthetic and function. She believes the way you subconsciously interact within a home can have a significant impact on your daily life and, therefore, thrives to improve the lives of her clients by creating, altering, or transforming the space in which they live. Her mission in any project is to build a lasting and quality space using sustainable principles and environmental stewardship. Rebecca’s work enhances or transforms the style of the home to create cohesiveness in design. She takes pride in her work that ranges from small entry additions to the large new homes and all renovations in between.
Richard grew up in Cincinnati and graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2002. Shortly after becoming a Registered Architect in 2010, love and marriage brought him to Cleveland and, in 2015, he joined the team at Clemens Pantuso Architecture.
Growing up in the Chagrin Falls, Amanda has always been fond of the strong sense of community found not only in the village of Chagrin, but throughout Northeastern Ohio. She is excited now to have the opportunity to give back to those communities by providing authentic and meaningful designs. Amanda enjoys the challenge of maintaining historical significance and architectural details while also providing a highly functional modern day design. She prides herself in communicating and building relationships with clients, and expressing creativity when faced with problem solving challenges.
Peter joined the Clemens Pantuso team in April 2016. Prior to receiving his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from KSU in 2014, Peter freelanced in graphic design since 2006 granting him a significant interest in all things visual. This interest was fully understood when this focus on graphic design was implemented into the architectural design development process. The transition of an idea from paper to digital fabrication has always been a fascinating process to him, one that truly exemplifies how the converging of baffling amounts of architectural and sociological information can translate into a harmonic set of drawings (and eventually a beautiful building). Adjusting to the needs and preferences of each client serves as a challenge for every unique project and keeps him captivated by architecture.
Andrew grew up in Apalachin, NY and graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Marywood University in 2017. Upon graduation, Andrew was drawn to the Cleveland area through a desire to branch out and experience a new city while diving into learning about residential architecture.
With an interest in new technologies and visualization, Andrew enjoys using 3D modeling as a tool in the design process so that one can start to imagine the space they will be in, well before the construction phase. He also has a passion for experimenting with 3D printing and other means of digital fabrication to create scale models. What Andrew finds particularly fascinating about these new fabrication processes in relation to architecture is that advanced designs and experimental forms have suddenly become a viable possibility for a project.
Emily grew up with parents who loved architecture, which cemented her love for it at an early age. Although Emily appreciates all types of architecture, she is drawn the most to residential design because she admires the attention to details on all styles of homes. She believes being able to help clients take their dreams and co-create that reality a truly remarkable experience.
Emily is a native of Chagrin Falls and attended the University of Cincinnati graduating in April 2017. While there she participated in co-op semesters, working at three different firms, each focusing on different types of architecture. Emily plans to attend graduate school in the near future – in the mean time she’s enjoying working, being a cat mom and her passion for photography.
