The Architetta is a Cleveland-based architecture practice focused on residential and small-scale commercial design.
Specializing in renovation and restoration, the practice is led by Architect Antonia Marinucci. Her intention is to honor and highlight the historic roots of the architecture she renovates, while sensitively introducing modern updates to bring century-homes into the new millennia.
Marinucci received her Master of Architecture and Master of Urban Design from Kent State University’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, and her Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. Prior to founding her own practice in 2018, she practiced in commercial architecture for nine years. Her previous work experience – which spanned various fields including healthcare, performing arts, education, and corporate – prepared her for practice at a variety of scales with an understanding of building infrastructure and construction process.
Antonia is an insured, licensed architect in the state of Ohio and a LEED accredited professional. She is highly practiced in the construction and permitting process in the City of Cleveland.
