Nationally recognized architectural, planning, and interior design firm Looney Ricks Kiss (LRK) is pleased to announce Tony Pellicciotti as managing principal of its staff of over 120 across eight offices.
Pellicciotti is one of LRK’s fourteen principals representing its markets in Memphis, Dallas, Philadelphia, Orlando/Celebration, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Little Rock, and Princeton. Tony has been with LRK for over 27 years and has consistently demonstrated outstanding project leadership, fostered collaboration, and achieved creative solutions for our clients.
“With a broad, diverse range of project experience, Tony has helped establish LRK’s national expertise in historic and adaptive reuse projects. Tony practices LRK’s culture of collaboration in every project and interaction. He embodies the LRK philosophy both personally and professionally,” said Frank Ricks, LRK founding principal based in Memphis. “He believes that thoughtful design inspires and motivates people to be, and to achieve, more than they thought possible, and we are confident that he will bring the same attributes to his new role.”
Pellicciotti’s practice has guided and led to the social, economic, and critical successes of internationally acclaimed projects such as Crosstown Concourse, the world’s largest historic, adaptive reuse, LEED Platinum certified project, as well as the Tennessee Brewery, Chisca on Main, and Orion Federal Credit Union Headquarters. Such examples have lended LRK’s adaptive reuse expertise across the country with projects in the pipeline including current high-rise projects in Philadelphia and Salt Lake City.
Pelliccioti’s projects over the years have been recognized with numerous industry awards and featured in publications including ARCHITECT, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest, Metropolis, Building Design + Construction, and Contract.
“One of LRK’s greatest strengths is its mindset of a small firm, family culture and, simultaneously, the horsepower and skillsets of a large firm. Built into this culture is the flexibility for team members to learn, grow and develop expertise in project types ranging in scale and architectural stylistic responses,” said Mike Sullivan, principal based in Baton Rouge. “Our willingness to collaborate internally and externally across our various studios brings added value to our clients.”
