After studying architecture at McGill University in Montreal, R. Scott Bromley, AIA, moved to New York City, “bumped into Philip Johnson, miraculously landed a job,” he says. Bromley established his own practice in 1974 and has designed single-family houses in Fire Island, East Hampton, Broome’s Island, and Caracas and restaurants in New York and Caracas. Perhaps most importantly, Bromley helped to change the tenor of the times with his groundbreaking architectural work for the discotheque Studio 54.
Jerry Caldari first worked for Bromley in 1979, but it wasn’t until 1991 that they formed Bromley Caldari Architects. The two principals are known for their easygoing natures, enthusiasm for their work, and commitment to personal service–as well as for resolving challenges and creating excitement in every project. By employing a distinctive modern style with clean, handsome, original lines, Bromley Caldari “makes new out of the old,” with industrial materials often adding wit and whimsy. Recent New York City projects have included a substantial townhouse combination, a chic pied-a-terre, the gut renovation of a duplex penthouse on Central Park, and the restoration of the B’nai Jeshurun Synagogue.
