LULY BESTARD-MELARTI

PRINCIPAL, ARCHITECT

Luly is a founding member of TerraCotta Design Build and brings more than 20 years of residential and commercial architecture experience to the company. She excels at architectural design with the ability to bring a project from conception to completion. As manager she oversees and coordinates the architectural team for the office. Luly currently lives in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and her proximity to New York City allows TerraCotta access to the latest in product and design resources.

Luly and her husband are raising their three beautiful children in a tri-lingual household. They have recently added Luna, a black and white English Cocker Spaniel, to their family, and they cannot imagine life without her. Luly believes that her exposure to different cultures and languages continues to shape the way she approaches design. Her childhood years growing up in her native Miami were formative years and continue to influence her work and her life to this day.

When she is not flying back and forth from New York to Atlanta, Luly loves to cook for family and friends and believes that food can bring people together. Recently, she has started growing her own vegetables to add to her home cooked meals. She lives a very active life and spends much of her free time sharing passions with her family. On any given weekend they can be found cooking, hiking, snow skiing, sailing, traveling or just spending time in NYC. Luly believes that to be a great designer, you must continue to develop yourself both professionally and personally and never stop learning!
