Lucia Bartholomew

B.A., M.Arch, Assoc. AIA

Lucia Bartholomew is a Founding Associate of the Los Angeles office since 2013, and has been committed to its  success and growth. Examples of projects include numerous residential projects, including low rise condominiums, and new restaurants.

Prior to this, Lucia worked for six years  in New York and Los Angeles on projects ranging in scale from residential remodels to office towers, large scale museums and transportation hubs.

Upon graduating from Williams College in Massachusetts, she worked with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in New York for several years, working on major public projects such as the redesign of the World Trade Center Tower One and Master Plan.

During her time at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, where she received her Masters degree, she learned the most current practices and technology with the school that is at the forefront of using digital tools for design. Her work in Los Angeles at the firms Studio PCH, Gehry Partners, LLP and Griffin Enright Architects has included work at a variety of scales, from a new, ground-up restaurant on the beachfront in Malibu to the Guggenheim Museum in Abu Dhabi. She has also worked on new and remodeled houses in Los Angeles as the Project Architect and lead designer.

Her interests range from design at the scale of furniture to the organization of large-scale projects, with a belief that strategic design can provide both the best formal solution and efficient allocation of resources.

On a move forward basis, Lucia will assume the role of Managing Principal for the Venice-based boutique Electric Bowery design studio, an off-shoot of Scott Shields (formerly Scott Morris). She will collaborate with Scott Shields on bigger projects.
