Ricardo Bilonick

It was there that he learned how materials interact, the importance of human scale, and discovered the conversation between function and aesthetics. Design principles from the water need little translation on land, and he has spent almost as much time working on homes, as he has at the desk designing them. A graduate of the Boston Architectural Center with Thesis Commendations, Ricardo has stayed active in the school as guest critic, student mentor, and portfolio reviewer.
