George Ranalli Architect (GRA) is an award-winning, full-service architecture firm with a rich history of delivering exceptional design solutions. Established in 1977, the family-owned business has built a reputation for balancing modern design with classical and crafts traditions, and for delivering sustainable, bespoke design solutions.
The firm's portfolio is extensive, spanning from mountain top villas to major renovations and modest additions, including kitchens and bathrooms, custom built-ins, and a variety of outbuildings. GRA has also worked on a wide range of project typologies, including single-family and multigenerational homes, townhouses, apartments, penthouses, and multifamily and campus residences, as well as landscape design.
At the helm of GRA is George Ranalli, a registered architect with a broad base of experience in all types of design. He graduated from Pratt Institute and Harvard Graduate School of Design and is registered in multiple states across the US, as well as some countries. Mr. Ranalli's life and work partner, Anne Valentino, PhD, COO, is a professional psychologist and chief of design operations at GRA. She is responsible for ensuring the infrastructure of people, processes, and craft are optimized to deliver high-quality architecture and design.
One of the firm's greatest strengths is its ability to listen to clients and steward project delivery on time and on budget. The majority of new projects are the result of repeat business or referrals from former clients, a testament to the firm's commitment to delivering timeless and sophisticated design solutions. GRA's approach is to give clients what they want and then take design to the next level, resulting in design solutions that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing.
