Brittany came to the Pacific Northwest eager to participate in Seattleā€™s booming urban-infill development and progressive building culture. She is passionate about creating places in which people thrive while consuming less. With experience in energy-efficient, urban-infill projects, she is excited to be a member of the Workplace studio.

Her early years were spent living abroad, and the exposure to European history and buildings is where her love for architecture began. Once landing back in the US she studied architecture with an emphasis in sustainable design in both Georgia and in Oregon. The duality in geography, culture, and education between her two degrees created a fusion of sustainability-through-technology and sustainability-through-conservation ethos that has remained the backbone of her work ever since.

Brittany is a frequent speaker on sustainable design principles, a certified Passive House consultant, and past Board Member for Passive House Northwest. Brittany is the Young Architects Regional Director for the AIA Northwest & Pacific Region, acting as liaison to the Committee on the Environment. You can find Brittany spending her weekends working on home renovation projects, gardening, backpacking or skiing.
