Jay A. Lubow, R.A., LEED AP
After obtaining dual master degrees in Architecture and Urban Planning in 1982, Jay worked as a Master Planner for the 1984 Louisiana World Exposition. Remaining in New Orleans following the Fair, he explored the lessons of urban design at the reduced scale of corporate interiors, and found major similarities in the principles that govern space at both scales. He spent four years as the Director of Interior Design at a well-known New Orleans architecture firm, specializing in corporate and retail interiors projects.
Jay's transition back to New York included a five-month detour to Singapore to prepare a building evaluation, program and recommend a temporary relocation site for one of the world's best known multi-national corporate insurance firms. The result of his study became the basis for site selection to temporarily house the firm for four years while their existing headquarters building was demolished and a new structure built. Taking advantage of this opportunity, he was able to study the indigenous and vernacular architecture of Malaysia and Indonesia.
Based in New York and practicing interior architecture since mid-1989, Jay has managed the design, documentation and construction of over three-million square feet of office and retail facility build-outs in over twenty-two States. As the manager of the New York office of a major national interior architecture firm for over five years, he has established and helped to strengthen many important client relationships. His easy manner, combined with an intense focus, has lead to many long-term client friendships. He is often viewed as a consensus builder and an advisor on space, design and leasing issues.
Jay is proud to be a founding member and Senior Principal in ADI.
