Daniel Lobitz




As a partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Daniel Lobitz leverages his wide-ranging design expertise to create places that are captivating, contextual, and contribute to the public realm. 

Since joining Robert A.M. Stern Architects in 1986, Dan has been responsible for designing and managing a diverse body of work, including multi-family residential buildings, hotels and resorts, and institutional buildings. His ability to work across boundaries extends to his role as lead designer for the firm's product design initiative, which has produced award-winning furnishings, textiles, lighting, and more for several leading manufacturers. No matter the scale of the project, from cabinet pull to community planning, Dan is committed to exceeding client expectations.

As partner overseeing many of the firm's multifamily residential projects, Dan's work has had a transformative impact on cities across the country. He has led design on the tallest residential building in Lower Manhattan at 30 Park Place, added romance to the Chicago Skyline with One Bennett Park, and reimagined Boston's red-brick apartment houses at Lovejoy Wharf. Currently, he's overseeing a new development in San Francisco that restores the residential fabric of the Presidio Heights community and features the adaptive reuse of two historically significant structures.

Dan is active in his professional community as a member of the American Institute of Architects, the Urban Land Institute, the Congress for the New Urbanism, and the Cornell Hotel Society. He has served as a juror at the Yale School of Architecture and lectured on the evolution of luxury multi family residential architecture in New York City, from its nineteenth century origins to the present. Dan has also shared his insight into history, place, and design as a juror for the RAMSA Traveling Fellowship, as editor of Architecture and Body, and as co-author of the monograph City Living: Apartment Houses by Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
