David Lagé


Spatial and Architectural Strategy

David is an architect who focuses on conceiving and creating commercial places that are meaningful, unique, and relevant to both their stakeholders and their surroundings.  For him, the value of a place starts from its singular situation and strategic purpose.  By embracing a place’s inherent qualities and legacies, his architecture embodies local histories, cultures, meanings and most importantly, its authenticity.

David has 15 years of experience working with real estate investment foundations in New York and Switzerland and has broad experience in conceptualizing how post-industrial, post-urban and post-suburban real estate can reestablish market relevance.

He has developed repurposing concepts for underperforming commercial and hospitality buildings, as well as placemaking projects in the cultural sector, such as the Topography of Terror in Berlin and Artfarms in Buffalo NY, which was awarded funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

His current work trajectory focuses on the impacts of the expanding virtual experience on the physical, architectural one.

David has a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, a Graduate Design Diploma from the Architectural Association in London, and has been a licensed architect since 2004.
