This year’s AD100 boasts a truly remarkable collection of the world’s top designers and architects. Among those listed in the 2014 AD100 is the esteemed Robert A.M. Stern, FAIA of Robert A.M. Stern Architects.

No matter what aesthetic you gravitate towards, it’s beneficial to gain at least a passing familiarity with Stern’s tremendous accomplishments in the world of architecture.

Stern’s love of the Shingle style and Georgian style is reflected in the recently completed George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.  However, Stern’s talent shouldn’t be confined to a singular style. His ability to preserve the essence of historical styles, while incorporating innovative modern materials and construction has some attaching him to a broader label — modern traditionalist.

A few glimpses at his projects offer an idea of the architectural finesse for which Stern and his associates have received well-deserved accolades. Included is the Museum Center of the Mark Twain House in Conn., which is the first LEED certified museum in the U.S. and the remarkable offices for GlaxoSmithKline in Philadelphia, Pa.

Other public projects to which he’s brought his talents include courthouses, schools, retail establishments and more. However, Stern also lends his skill to the private sector, offering his signature architectural and interior designs on luxury residences. It’s here that you will often find elements of his traditional styles. Interiors are appointed in rich wood finishes, luxurious upholstery covers, updated traditional furniture and beautiful fine art.

Like many distinguished designers, Stern has developed his own collection, which captures his aesthetic in carefully conceived interior design elements. Furniture, hardware, lighting, carpets and even garden ornaments are among his many offerings.
