New York City Architect Nancy Ruddy—and her husband and business partner John Cetra—started the CetraRuddy global design firm in 1987. The guiding principle, they said, was that architecture should “engage the urban fabric while enriching the human spirit.”
Among their biggest projects are the soaring One Madison tower and the Tribeca celebrity hot spot that is 443 Greenwich Street. They’ve also designed 67 Livingston Street, a Silverback Development project in Brooklyn Heights, in the borough they call home.
Among their most recent projects is Hamilton Cove—a three-tower collection of 573 luxury rental residences along the Lincoln Harbor waterfront in Weehawken, New Jersey.
We caught up with Ms. Ruddy to discuss changing buyer and developer tastes, how to make a house a home, and more.
