As a Principal and Healthcare Practice Leader at CosciaMoos, Renata applies nearly 30 years of hands-on experience in medical planning and project management to develop sustainable, adaptable, healing environments. Combining industry research and client engagement with best practices and a sensitivity to the needs of patients and staff, Renata’s approach is inspired by her understanding of the power of the built environment to transform the healthcare experience and facilitate better clinical outcomes. With an awareness of how industry trends may impact health and wellness spaces, Renata can’t predict the future, but she can make sure CosciaMoos’s clients are prepared for it.
Her projects span a variety of types, sizes, and complexities including new construction and renovations of hospitals, ambulatory centers, and outpatient clinics for local and regional providers as well as major health networks such as New York-Presbyterian, Montefiore Health, and Northwell Health. She guides multi-disciplinary teams across all phases of design and construction and brings strategic insight, industry expertise, and creative problem-solving into everything she does. In her view, a successful project is one that prepares facilities with the flexibility to thrive in an industry defined by rapidly changing technology, demographics, and disruptors while maintaining the highest standard of care.
Renata believes in cultivating a supportive workplace that values relationships, encourages individuality, and advances the next generation of architecture professionals through mentorship. Outside of the office, her commitment to the responsible use of resources translates into a personal love of DIY projects involving reuse of salvaged and reclaimed construction materials. She enjoys discovering new and unique travel destinations, sharing adventures with friends, and the restorative power of nature with her husband and rescue dog.
Renata is a LEED accredited professional. She is an alumnus of the New York Institute of Technology, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.
Founding principal and managing partner David Moos keeps CosciaMoos thriving, clients happy, and everything running smoothly. He believes in designing solutions--not just buildings--and approaches each project with an open mind and a collaborative spirit. David works closely with clients to ensure the firm's work supports their partners' vision, their values, and their budget. Through a combination of imagination and foresight, he crafts spaces that improve lives today, while remaining flexible enough to accommodate any unexpected changes tomorrow.
A fast learner with a good business sense, David co-founded CosciaMoos to create a practice that offers clients the specialized knowledge and experience he gained working at larger firms, with the attention to detail and personal service of a smaller practice. His professionalism and expertise in the higher-ed and healthcare sectors have helped CosciaMoos grow from a scrappy startup to a resilient firm with a national presence.
David connects with a wide network of interdisciplinary professionals as an active member of the Urban Land Institute, where he co-founded the Philadelphia Health and Life Sciences Product Council. In all his pursuits, he is driven by a strong curiosity, a passion for learning new ideas, and a desire to experience new ways of seeing the world. The same drive to take risks and try new things that has helped CosciaMoos grow keeps David taking on new challenges outside the office, whether it's figuring out how to cool a wine cellar or building a timber-framed barn himself.
David Moos, AIA, is licensed to practice in 26 states. He holds a Master's Degree in Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin and a BA in History from Brown University.
Not many people can claim to be from such a small island beach town, but Gary is lucky enough to have grown up on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. Gary also grew up with an early interest in architecture when he had the opportunity to help his dad draw up the plans for their family’s new construction home. Fascinated by each stage of design and construction, Gary knew that he had found his passion and future career. As a licensed and LEED accredited architect, Gary is a project manager where he gets to realize his designs through leadership, knowledge of complicated BIM programs and detailed expertise in exterior design, healthcare and lab facilities. Receiving his Bachelor of Architecture from Philadelphia University, Gary can still be found working on projects in his own home (much like he did growing up) as well as finding ways to contribute to his love of Philadelphia and its rich architectural story
