About Katherine Newman Design

Rather than being defined by a single style, each project is approached as a distinct commission which considers the interplay between the function of a space, the unique requirements related to the client and the surrounding physical context. A diverse knowledge of historical and modernist detail facilitates a remarkably bespoke product which, rather than relying on a literal purity of style, allows for the synthesizing of divergent aesthetics in a thoroughly original way. A hybrid language which rejects trends but rather looks to the past, embraces the present and considers the future. A unique attention to detail and commitment to design integrity is very much rooted in a business model which limits the number of projects taken per year such that the two principles, designer Katherine Newman and architect Peter Cebulak, remain the lead team members for all projects. The firm sees no distinction between architecture, interior design and art. An extension of the firm’s creative activity includes commissioned paintings and sculpture by lead architect Peter Cebulak. Katherine Newman Design’s clientele consists of aesthetes interested in architecture and interior design which inspires and is unique while valuing authenticity and the reference to provenance in the pursuit of achieving timeless environments. Katherine Newman Design’s client base includes a lengthy list of repeat clients, having completed multiple projects for the same clients as well as for various generations of the same families. Since 1991, the firm’s commissions include large scale prestigious residential and commercial projects throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. Katherine Newman Design has been published in the most prestigious international design journals and has been included among the Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Architects and Designers and was named House and Home’s Inaugural Designer of the Year.
