About Sergio Coscia

As founding principal and lead designer at CosciaMoos, Sergio Coscia guides the firm’s creative direction with a global perspective and sensitivity to local context. He’s passionate about understanding the historic fabric of cities from a cultural and social perspective, and committed to designing buildings that respect that sense of place. But Sergio balances his deference with boldness, guided by a belief that introducing new ideas into our cities makes them more vital and more resonant with the way we live.

Sergio was born in Belgium, raised in Italy and Philadelphia, and has worked throughout Europe, East Asia, and the Middle East. He co-founded CosciaMoos to share his international experience with large-scale projects while cultivating a deeper connection with clients and the places he works. Sergio believes the best projects are built on strong relationships, and today he leads a team of well-rounded designers that value clear communication at every stage of the process.

An active member of the Urban Land Institute, Sergio sits on the ULI Urban Revitalization Council, which explores new solutions for reinvigorating of cities, neighborhoods, and communities. He supports the local arts community and finds inspiration for his own practice as Chair of the Board of Directors for The Clay Studio, a non-profit institution dedicated to promoting and developing the ceramic arts. And he also enjoys exploring culture and history at home in the kitchen, curing meats; in the garage, restoring his 1984 Alfa Romeo Spider; or on the track, practicing the art of driving fast by racing vintage cars.

Sergio Coscia, AIA, is a registered architect in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, and North Carolina. He is an alumnus of the University of Pennsylvania and holds a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Maryland.

Ultimately raised in Central Pennsylvania, John was ecstatic to get back to his urban roots to attend Drexel University in Philadelphia, where he earned his Bachelor of Architecture. He is a licensed architect in Pennsylvania and also carries LEED AP BD+C credentials. While enjoying his out-of-office workout of running through the city, John contemplates his desire to improve the built and social dynamics of Philadelphia, a place he has come to love. When he is not running or solving challenges at CosciaMoos, he is often found hanging out with his neighbors (and dogs!) in the local dog park and volunteering at his local community organizations in East Kensington.

About Melissa Nerone

As a project accountant, Melissa is focused on the numbers behind the creativity at CosciaMoos. She works with each team to track project costs and progress, monitors cash flow, and is responsible for the accounting duties of the firm. Originally from a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Melissa always knew she wanted to experience city life, so she moved to New York City as soon as possible after graduating from Michigan Technological University. She lived in NYC for over ten years and over that time, she developed an appreciation for the aesthetic of the city, which she was able to hone in on while working for a developer and owner’s representative firm as a senior-level project accountant.

Melissa was drawn to Philadelphia because it has many of the features she loves about NYC but at a pace that better suits her lifestyle. In her role at CosciaMoos, Melissa enjoys being able to provide the tools to team members and to management to help facilitate important decision making. In her free time, Melissa likes to relax with her husband and dog. She also helps with dog and cat care as a volunteer at the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).

About John Adam Plenge

John Adam Plenge brings a fresh perspective to his role in the healthcare studio. Originally from Manhattan, John was inspired to pursue the field of design thanks to the diverse and historic architecture found in his home neighborhood of Gramercy. John’s journey led him to Philadelphia when he was 17, where he would later graduate from Philadelphia University with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. Although not interior design, John’s role involves documenting existing conditions, reviewing site reports, and executing test fits for many of the firm’s national rollout projects. Beyond his professional pursuits, John occasionally volunteers at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education and the Broad Street Ministry. He also is an avid cyclist and is in the midst of attempting to organize a firm bicycle tour of Philly’s famous architectural sites.

About Emily Tantillo

As a Senior Interior Designer in CosciaMoos’s Healthcare Studio, Emily thoughtfully combines her experience in a myriad of different sectors (including senior living, education, hospitality, retail, commercial, and multi-family) to create functional and attractive cross-sectional spaces. An NCIDQ-certified interior designer, Emily most enjoys the “puzzle” aspect of design—fitting a client’s program into a pre-determined space both efficiently and elegantly. She takes pride in coming up with solutions to problems before the client even realizes something’s wrong. Emily grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs, earned a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from the University of Pittsburgh, then moved back to Philly to pursue a Master’s degree in Interior Architecture and Design from Drexel University. Now she lives in South Philadelphia with her fiancé and cat, where she regularly rearranges the living room furniture, much to their confusion.
