Meet the Team:
Antonio Scalise, AIA, Principal Architect/Founder
Our firm was founded by Antonio Scalise, a registered Architect in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, NCARB Certified, and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the New Jersey Institute of Technology and brings over twenty-five years of field experience, which allows him to bring a unique perspective to each project. This valuable construction experience gives him insight into real field conditions and how to streamline the process – whether it’s high end custom residential projects or various public and commercial projects.
“I knew from a very early age that I wanted to be an architect.”
Antonio comes from a long family history of masons from Italy and grew up working in his family’s business. His creativity and passion for design were cultivated at an early age as he developed an understanding for how design and construction come together. To further his career he apprenticed under licensed architects where he learned the importance of working as a team with other trades, contractors and professionals. More than 17 years ago, the concept of Parallel was born.
With a degree in architecture and a background in construction, Antonio is able to bridge the gap between these two disciplines, providing a comprehensive experience that is both satisfying and enjoyable to his clients.)
