Stephen Lindenmuth was raised in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, an historic town of distinguished buildings that helped inspire a genuine love of architecture. After graduating from the Pennsylvania State University's five-year Bachelor of Architecture program, he studied furniture and architecture design in Florence, Italy. Further travels in Italy, France, Germany and England have forged a personal esthetic of correct proportion and scale. For eleven years he was an associate of prominent Lewisburg architect Malcolm Clinger who was influenced by the Beaux Arts School of Architecture. This diverse background has created a special interest in the interplay of exterior, interior and landscape design.
Projects have been executed in Pennsylvania, Florida, New York, Maryland, and Washington D.C.
Working closely with a client's agenda and incorporating the specific influences of the site help facilitate the development of the appropriate design solution. In renovations and restorations, the historic proportions and details are honored. In new construction, the goal is uncompromised functionality while achieving the desired design expectation. Years of working with the area's finest builders has established a shared understanding of the skills and knowledge required for these quality results.
Residential designs are individually tailored for each client's unique lifestyle and requirements. Building upon 20th Century architecture, as well as traditional European and American vernacular styles, every technological convenience is incorporated into a comfortable and classic design.
Classic, comfortable and enduring design are the hallmarks of great interiors. Whether creating casual or formal spaces the client's needs and requirements are always the first consideration. Custom furniture can be produced by a distinguished group of craftsmen. Antique furniture and carpets make wonderful accents even in contemporary settings. Custom curtains, wall coverings, specialized lighting and audio-visual systems are all effortlessly integrated. Renovation services include the reorganization of existing interiors, custom reupholstery, and careful placement of new mechanicals and services.
Projects have included formal gardens, outdoor living spaces, and renovations to existing landscapes. The primary goal is to enhance the building by producing beautiful surroundings and to integrate the interior and exterior spaces. Garden structures, water features, pools and lighting effects, as well as plant selection and installation supervision, are all carefully planned for every landscaping project.
Clients include business leaders, industrialists, and institutions. Since 1973 commissions have ranged from city apartments to working farms, country estates to townhouses, and major restorations of historic buildings.
