Laurie Keene, AIA

Architect, Lead Interior Designer

Laurie Keene joined the firm after graduating from the College of the Holy Cross in 2008, where she earned a B.A. in Economics with a minor in Art & Architectural History. Over the last 12 years, she has trained directly under Ron refining her technical skills, as well as gaining invaluable design experience in thoughtful, well-proportioned floor plans, elevations, and details.  After continuing her education at the Boston Architectural College, she recently completed the Architect Registration Exams and is a licensed architect.  

Her passion lies in residential design - both in renovations and in new construction designs. She loves figuring out a puzzle or creative solution.  Along with her design team, Laurie has developed a new Interior Design division to DiMauro Architects, providing a 'one stop shopping' solution for our clients.  Being able to take the design from initial layout all the way through interior finishes has been extremely fulfilling.  She and her team have won multiple awards for their design work including RI Monthly and HGTV's Design Awards in 2017, 2018, and 2019.


In addition, she excels at establishing and implementing firm wide goals within the office including strategic planning for project success, as well as creating opportunities for growth and professional development.


She lives with her family in Southern Rhode Island, and enjoys spending time studying and documenting historic details in Europe, as well as exploring seaside towns on the East and West coasts.
