How do we create solutions for complex challenges with design?
Stefanie's interests in expanding her architectural design breadth has led to her working on a wide variety of project types, such as custom celebrity homes, trendy coffee shops, regimented technology and science labs, as well as everyday workplaces.
Furthermore, her keen awareness that architecture and space is not something that operates on its own, but in addition to and with the people that use and operate in the space leads to her natural curiosity in how people interact with their surroundings.
Stefanie's approach to each project has its own unique aspects that must be addressed in order to create an end product that is not only beautiful but also highly functional. She takes these ideas into design strategy - how do you create solutions for complex problems using simple design ideas? Using a big-picture approach, with a focus on results, Stefanie is able to come up with successful creative design solutions for challenges big and small.
Stefanie is currently a founding board member and Treasurer for ACEL Los Angeles, an active Committee member of APA Holiday Toy Drive in Los Angeles, Director of Marketing and an active Steering Committee member of Project by Project in Los Angeles, and past board member of NAAAP Los Angeles.
In her free time, Stefanie enjoys sipping third wave coffee, eating obscure Kit Kats from around the world, attempting to hike, and keep her pet turtle and house plants alive.
