You’ve probably seen the popular posters for this question in your local newsroom or on Twitter: Which condo designer should you pick to design your own condo?
It’s a tricky question to answer, and there are two main reasons for that.
First, the type of condo can have an impact on the final product.
Second, the condo is usually built on a property you already own, meaning there’s a lot of time to learn what the aesthetic should look like from the get-go.
If you’re thinking about a design that is built to last, you should probably go with a designer who already has the experience to build that kind of project.
For example, the best-known designer is Michael Newell, the architect behind the iconic Neiman Marcus and the designer behind the luxurious, state-of-the-art, and timeless Neiman Rack, the home of the world famous Louis Vuitton collection.
The Neiman-Marcus brand has been around for almost a century, and Newell has been the designer of countless high-end luxury condos and high-profile homes around the world.
Newell’s clients have included designers such as Alessandro Michele, Michael Kors, Pierre Cardin, and Alessandro Visconti.
And Newell was responsible for the first high-rise condo in New York City.
But Newell is best known for designing high-priced, high-concept luxury condos that are built for the masses.
