Margherita Menino


Margherita Menino is an architect who runs Menino Design Studio, a boutique firm, providing highly personalized design services in luxury residential, retail, hospitality, and corporate spaces.

Inspired by the art and architecture of her homeland, Italy, Menino’s firm has worked with trusted architects and design partners to create luxury in various sectors. “We translate our clients’ taste and lifestyle into their environments, developing a clear conceptual thread to express the space’s highest potential.”

With over 16 years of experience, Menino, has built up an impressively intuitive understanding of space and aesthetics. “I think that to be an architect, a designer is not something that you’re gonna learn in one day. Architecture is something that you're going to learn from until you’re 90 years old. It’s no learning curve, it’s like infinite progress. It’s always, what is next? What is new?”

“New York is so exciting, and I really love my job. I’ve had the fortune in my life to travel the world a lot. And I think that when you travel, you truly understand yourself and the world.” Establishing herself in New York’s architectural scene has catapulted Menino to higher heights, and we can’t wait to see what she does next.
