LOVETT KESHET STUDIO

ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

 

about

Lovett Keshet Studio is an architecture and design practice led by Elizabeth Lovett Keshet. We provide full architectural services ranging from feasibility studies, design services, construction documentation and construction administration.

Years of professional experience and an aptitude in advanced design and manufacturing techniques enable us to create new forms with innovative construction methods. We reach beyond the traditional limitations of construction to achieve unique concepts within traditional budgets and schedules.

We believe in the efficacy of form and are optimistic about the social and economic value of intentionally crafted space.

Lovett Keshet Studio is a certified woman-owned business (WBE, WOSB) and a member of the sustainable business network of Philadelphia.

Elizabeth Lovett is a registered architect with over 15 years of professional experience. Her interest in the language of geometry and the pragmatic constraints of materials and construction has led her to become heavily involved in the engineering and fabrication of many of her designs.

Originally from Louisville, Ky, Elizabeth gained architectural experience in master planning, design, and construction documentation at Stanev Potts Architects and Kieran Timberlake in Philadelphia, as well as the Galante Architecture Studio in Boston. She has worked as a project engineer for the A. Zahner Company, co-designing and overseeing the manufacture and on-site installation of complex facade systems.

Elizabeth is a trustee and board member of the Gladwyne Free Library and a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania in the department of Architecture. She is a co-author of Material Design: Informing Architecture by Materiality, published by Birkhauser and her drawings appear in The Function of Form, by Farshid Moussavi.

 

Yair Keshet is a registered architect with over 15 years of experience. His aptitude in finding efficiency and beauty in spatial relationships has enabled him to lead as the project architect on a variety of prominent projects worldwide.


He has worked as a lead designer on numerous award-winning projects internationally. At the office of Preston Scott Cohen, he was a key member on the design of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Taiyuan Museum of Art, and the Nanjing University Performing Arts Center.
