Rick Tomasetti is a native of Wilton. He attended Wilton Public Schools and graduated from Wilton High. He is the Managing Principal at Lovas & Tomasetti Architects located in Wilton. His firm provides architecture services to private clients and businesses for both the residential and commercial markets. He holds his architecture license in Connecticut, New York and South Carolina, and is a member in good standing of the American institute of Architects and the National Council of Architecture Registration Boards.
Rick first learned about architecture from Wilton’s resident architect, Lyn Eaton, working in his print room and drawing by hand. He subsequently learned how to build a building by working from a young age for his father’s construction firm, Tomasetti Building Company, which built many homes in town. He studied Structural Engineering at Syracuse University, and earned his degree in Architecture from Roger Williams University. He completed his thesis study in Urban Planning with “The Sono Harbor Center, an Urban Revival Project”. Other areas of study included Historic Preservation at Regent’s College in London, England and Classical Design at the Institute of Classical Architecture, New York, NY. Upon completion of his studies, Rick worked for residential and commercial architecture firms to develop his own perspective and style in all aspects of design.
Along with his architecture practice Mr. Tomasetti has had other entrepreneurial endeavors related to the construction, development and real estate professions.
Rick lives in Wilton with his wife Patty (who is an interior designer) and their son Ricky (who is a senior at WHS).
Rick has spent many years volunteering his time with local organizations including his current service on both the Miller-Driscoll Building Committee and the Planning and Zoning Commission. He previously served on the board of directors of The Wilton Family YMCA, and was a member of the Wilton Building Inspector Board of Appeals and the Wilton Water Pollution Control Authority. He has also coached youth baseball, lacrosse and football (where he continues to volunteer his time even though his son is in high school).
