Rex Nichols Architects on a Mission for Contemporary Design as an Art Movement

Many people connect contemporary architecture with iconic buildings such as New York architects Herzog & de Meuron’s 56 Leonard St., NYC, which share sculptural geometric forms, playful layouts, and innovative façades to create structures that continuously provoke, challenge, and inspire. The name of the game in contemporary architecture is audacity.

Alex Penna, Lead Contemporary Designer, LEED AP, and Business Partner at Rex Nichols Architects + Developers (RNA) comments, “We all admire mid-century architects such as Mies van der Rohe, but there is so much more to offer in this new era of contemporary design, free of restriction. Finally, New York architects, Provincetown architects and Southampton architects can create a building as sculptural art, there is nothing that can hold back a great design. The mantra “form follows function” no longer applies.” Penna had his first taste of contemporary architecture while working for renowned architectural firms, Rem Koolhaas OMA, Foster + Partners and Rafael Viñoly Architects.

RNA Architects is on a mission to introduce contemporary architecture as an innovative artistic expression for residential projects. RNA believes the best approach to achieve this mission is to become Developers. RNA aims to be fully immersed in the contemporary art movement and will not compromise on its ability to lead the direction of architecture. As a Developer, RNA maintains control over budget, pro forma, architectural language and style, floor plans, interior design, lighting, landscaping, sustainability, and the quality of construction and materials. A client unfamiliar with contemporary design may set aside the bold and audacious visual impact of contemporary architecture. The control and efficiency created by the combined roles of Architect and Developer introduce a unique opportunity for the savvy investor to participate in the art movement and achieve a high rate of Return On Investment.

RNA Development Managers, Gary Kittredge and Russell S. Shafer, are partnering with RNA Architects + Developers to develop ultra-contemporary homes in Los Angeles, New York-Long Island, Cape Cod, and South Florida. Gary Kittredge has a distinguished 30-year multi-faceted career in Publishing, Public
