Carl Carfi


“I enjoy the entire process of creating a home. It’s very rewarding to see the evolution from the initial design concept to the final product, and have the client walk into the house and experience all of the details you’ve been so passionate about and focused on.”

Carl Carfi has long had passion for residential architecture. While he was a student at Fordham University, he spent summers interning at a prestigious Connecticut architecture firm. Following his graduation from Fordham with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Pre-Architecture, he immediately enrolled in the New Jersey Institute of Technology for his Master of Architecture, where he received a Comprehensive Studio Design Award for his design of a sustainable winery for a local New Jersey farm.

After graduating with his Master’s, Carl joined Mark P. Finlay Architects in Connecticut full time, where he worked on a number of historic renovations and rehabilitations including the Aloha Boathouse in Newport, Rhode Island which received the 2013 Doris Duke Preservation Award and the 2014 AtHome Magazine A-List Renovation Award. 

Carl joined GPSA in the spring of 2015 as a Project Manager and was promoted to Associate in January of 2019.  He has been involved in a number of projects, including the design of a new home and guest cottages on Block Island, Rhode Island, as well as the renovation of a 1908 home in San Francisco’s Presidio Heights neighborhood and the restoration of a historical house in Litchfield County, Connecticut. 

Carl lives with his wife in Hoboken, New Jersey.
