Brittany came to the Northwest eager to participate in Seattle’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 commercial office 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. Drawn to the field for its ability to affect local and global environments, her goal is to “create beautiful, healthy places for people while making the most efficient use of resources.”

She is a frequent speaker on sustainable design principles, a certified Passive House consultant, and serves as on the Board of Director for Passive House Northwest. Brittany is also the Young Architects Regional Director for the AIA Northwest & Pacific Region. When not working, you can find Brittany spending her weekends skiing or on multi-day solo hiking treks with her rescue pup, Lana.
