Steven Andersen


Steven is a Principal and Director of Workplace Design and Project Management Services at Armano Real Estate.

Born into a construction family, Steven has nurtured a love and knowledge of design throughout his life. It is this love that led him to study the art of architecture in Italy, at the American University of Rome, to receive his Bachelors of Architecture degree from the New York Institute of Technology, and ultimately to create an architectural and design firm with his long-time friend bearing his name.

Steven has spent 29 years honing his abilities in the corporate interiors world, with a particular affinity for spaces designed for creative, technology, healthcare and financial services use. Steven harbors a deep respect for all things creative, and nurtures this passion in his work for Armano, not only in sharing his love for music, art, architecture and design with those that he works with, but through his innate ability to encourage a curiosity that pushes the limits of creative thought.
