“We’re highly focused on working smarter and providing exceptional design value to our clients through our knowledgeable and personable staff.” --Alexander Badalamenti

Baldassano Architecture announced today it is changing its name to bld architecture to reflect the practice’s expansion beyond its Long Island roots into one of the region’s leading architectural design firms.

Pronounced “build,” the name change marks the 40-year-old firm’s entry into a new era, according to President/CEO Alexander Badalamenti, AIA, who assumed leadership from firm namesake Charles Baldassano in 2006.

“While as architects we are not builders, bld celebrates the origins of the architect as the master builder,” he explains. “What we do build are ideas, concepts and vision. More importantly, we build relationships with our clients and consultants.”

Under Badalamenti’s direction, the firm has spread its thoughtful appreciation for the Long Island community with progressive work into all five of the New York City boroughs and abroad. From Montauk to Westchester, recent notable projects are the Bulova Watchcase Condominium project in Sag Harbor, the YMCA Recreation Facility in Patchogue, the NEC Retail projects at the Nassau Coliseum and large automated FedEx facilities in Queens, Brooklyn and Yonkers.

“We’re highly focused on working smarter and providing exceptional design value to our clients through our knowledgeable and personable staff,” says Badalamenti, whose leadership team now includes Thomas Cromer, vice president/CFO; Thomas Murawski, director of operations; and Jeremy Linzee, director of design. Together, they are driving bld architecture’s innovative and integrated approach to future areas of growth.

The bld name is accompanied by a simple yet powerful icon created by Austin & Williams of Hauppauge, NY, that promotes a differentiating brand identity for the firm. Both will be introduced to the market in a unified campaign that will include the development of new stationery, collateral and direct marketing materials as well as a website redesign.
