Vincent Gino Ciccarelli

Vince is a founding partner of Insight Architects. With over 20 years of practicing architecture, he has experience on variety of educational, retail and entertainment projects from New York to Florida.

Vince has a special interest in helping schools design facilities for the next generation. These new schools are vibrant, energetic environments that emphasize personalization, multiple modes of learning, personal responsibility and achievement while avoiding the atmosphere of mass-produced education that accompanies so many other institutions. He believes that a well designed school can be a tool to help educators teach today’s students to think creatively, build a strong and ethical identity, communicate well and integrate with the local and global community.

Vince brings his passion for finding innovative solutions and his attention to detail to every project, regardless of size. He believes that quality design can help clients reach their goals, achieve their dreams and dramatically improve their quality of life.
