The Firm

The Firm

In 1996, Stephen Scheibly and Giovanni E. Coello formed Diversified Design Associates - Architects, P.C., a full service Architectural, Interior Design and Construction Management firm with the intention to meet a variety of needs for their clients.

They realized that their backgrounds were drawn from distinctly different experiences and that together they would be able to provide an extensive scope of services ranging from comfortable residential homes and apartments, unique interior design, efficient construction management to wide-ranging commercial, corporate, retail and healthcare structures. However, they would distinguish themselves by adhering to the overarching goal that each structure on which they collaborated would be executed with an incomparable flair. They have drawn upon their vast experience as flexible, deft and resourceful problem solvers while working from a position rooted in a balance of design and technical proficiency to help their clients achieve their goals. Stephen and Giovanni take pride in their drive to approach each project with enthusiasm, creativity and tremendous energy. Their number one priority is that their clients do not feel anonymous in a large firm but instead, form long-standing relationships with them in order to serve as a one stop firm for all of their architectural needs.
