Architect Rafael de Cárdenas knows a thing or two about fashion and fashionable interiors. He worked in men’s wear and accessories for Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger from 1996 through 1999, before earning a master’s degree in architecture in 2002 and embarking on his current career.
Among the projects at his firm, Architecture at Large, de Cárdenas designed homes for Parker Posey, Doutzen Kroes and Jessica Stam; interiors for Niko, the Japanese eatery in SoHo, and stores for Charlotte Ronson and aNYthing.
