Inspirational interior designers: Stern McCafferty practiceWednesday 27 May 2015
Stern McCafferty practice has the reputation of designing innovation and building beautiful projects.
David Stern and Diane McCafferty collaborate in a design process that involves working closely with their team of designers and with their clients to create projects that are authentic, evocative and responsive. Their work also is involved with the process of building as well; they believe that the engagement with the art of construction is really important for the project to succeed.
David Stern is a practicing architect with over 25 years of experience. He has designed private residences, libraries, museums, academic buildings, corporate interiors, retail spaces, and office buildings. He combines a unique design sensibility with a singular ability to engage in the art of building.
David brings his enthusiasm for design to the classroom, where he is adjunct professor of architecture at the Northeastern University School of Architecture in Boston. He holds a Master in Architecture from Harvard University, and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh and the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York City.
Diane McCafferty is an interior designer whose work bridges the gap between the traditional disciplines of architecture and interior design. She brings a unique sensitivity to her projects, carefully integrating materials and details to achieve, simple, elegant, and evocative interiors. Fueled by a desire for authenticity, she often creates project-specific furniture, lighting and accessories. She has designed private residences, corporate and institutional interiors, executive offices, and retail environments.
Diane holds a Master of Arts in Interior Design from Pratt Institute in New York City; she completed her undergraduate studies in art history at Boston College and industrial design at the Domus Academy in Milan.

Two attached townhouses were combined to create one residence in a dense, urban section of Boston’s historic South End. The design evolved from a desire to retain the individual spirit of the existing structures while celebrating their connection.
The rear facade was redesigned to incorporate large areas of glass overlooking a carefully crafted urban garden.
