Raquel P. Bito

Senior Design Manager

Raquel has over 20 years of professional experience working on mixed use, residential, hospitality, retail, commercial, and office projects, ranging in scale from high rise to boutique buildings.  Before joining Steinberg, she worked at Patri Merker Architects for several years. She enjoys the intersection of design, management, and the technical demands of a project; the triangulation of which is what she finds most challenging about Design. Raquel’s expertise lies in shepherding projects from conceptual design through construction administration, and is a true believer in the idiom, “the devil is in the details.” She finds it gratifying to see a project that started out as an idea realized in its execution and built form. She is also credited with establishing solid client relationships, creating a strong partnership with them throughout the Design Process. In addition to her architectural experience, Raquel has experience in commercial and residential real estate—working in the acquisition, management, and sale thereof.

Raquel is an avid golfer and skier, and occasional scuba diver.
