ROBERTO SOSA VALUES CONNECTION.  AS FOUNDER AND PRINCIPAL OF OBRA DESIGN STUDIO, HE TAKES GREAT PRIDE IN ESTABLISHING STRONG CONNECTIONS WITH HIS CLIENTS, WITH THE HISTORY OF EACH PROPERTY AND WITH THE LANDSCAPE AROUND HIM.

SOSA EARNED HIS DEGREE IN ARCHITECTURE AT THE UNIVERSIDAD CENTRAL DE VENEZUELA IN HIS NATIVE CARACAS.  THERE, HE WORKED TO LANDMARK THE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS AS A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE, COLLABORATING ON EXHIBITS AND BOOKS THAT RECOGNIZE ITS GROUNDBREAKING MODERN ART AND ARCHITECTURE.

HE ARRIVED IN NEW YORK CITY TO STUDY AT PRATT INSTITUTE IN 1999, AND SOON JOINED BORIS BARANOVICH ARCHITECTS, DESIGNING CLASSICAL AND MODERN RESIDENCES. HE THEN JOINED MOULIN & ASSOCIATES, DIRECTING EXTENSIVE RESTORATIONS OF HISTORIC TOWNHOUSES.  LATER, AS STUDIO DIRECTOR AT AERO STUDIOS, HE WORKED WITH THOMAS O'BRIEN ON THE FIRM'S INFLUENTIAL RETAIL, INDUSTRIAL AND RESIDENTIAL DESIGN PROJECTS.

SOSA LAUNCHED OBRA IN 2015.  HE HAS SINCE GAINED A LOYAL CLIENTELE BY DISCOVERING AND DEVELOPING PROPERTIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.  WHETHER IT'S A HISTORIC FARMHOUSE IN NEW YORK’S HUDSON VALLEY,  A COASTAL ESTATE IN SANTA BARBARA,  A TRADITIONAL PLANTATION COTTAGE IN HAWAII, OR A SIMPLE FARM-TO-TABLE RESTAURANT IN HARLEM, HE EFFORTLESSLY COMBINES THE INDIVIDUALITY OF EACH CLIENT WITH A CLASSICALLY MODERN AESTHETIC.

SOSA’S DESIGNS ARE TRUE TO HIS PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY -- BOLD, STRAIGHTFORWARD AND AUTHENTIC, COMBINING HIS REVERENCE FOR HISTORY AND HIS PASSION FOR modernity.
