Gregory La Vardera & Karen Milano

Gregory La Vardera is an architect practicing in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He is active in the promotion of Modern styled homes and prefabricated building solutions. He is a publisher of a unique collection of contemporary house plans which has led to his work being built nation wide. His partner Karen Milano is an interior designer and the aesthetic guru of LamiDesign Building. Her work is in business and institutional interiors in the Delaware Valley.

Greg and Karen participated in the development of the building that houses their office in 1999. Just six years later in 2006 they acquired the office and LamiDesign Building LLC was formed to manage the property and to expand into other development projects.


Our Focus is Modern Design

We are a small development and property management company with a focus on Modern properties. We are active in residential and light commercial projects and often partner with other developers and builders to provide access to the growing community of Modern and Green minded businesses and consumers. We combine our design skills and connection with the modern community to open up new opportunities to developers and builders interested in serving this emerging market. See our links below for Modern resources around the internet.

We believe in the benefits of living and working close to developed urban centers and are focused on the redevelopment of these inner ring and neglected city neighborhoods. In-fill, redevelopment, and small town renaissance projects are our favorites. We believe there is an environmental benefit to this, but even more so these small town and urban neighborhoods offer a greater quality of life and community than outer ring suburbs.


All around the Delaware Valley and Beyond

We are located in the small Borough of Merchantville, New Jersey, a few miles from the center of Philadelphia. We have been active participants in the rejuvenation of this small town since we moved here in 1992 coming to base our business here and take an ownership stake in the business district. While our physical presence is in the Delaware Valley region we are eager to help small developers and builders across the country gain access to the modern community.
