Maggie's Story...

  • Masters in Architecture from GA Tech

  • Harvard GSD- Summer Study

  • 15 + years of experience

Because I love solving design problems and from there creating solutions for a better living space, I decided to apply and go to Georgia Tech where I earned my Masters Degree in Architecture. My love for solutions and great design then led me to open up the doors to my own residential design studio in 2005. During this year I not only left my commercial architecture job in exchange for beginning my own studio, but I also married my childhood sweetheart and became pregnant with our first child. To me this year is symbolic and absolutely in tune with what I see for my studio & my clients: a wonderful and lasting relationship that is filled with birth and life and growth. & in turn I strive to always create a space that will echo all the positive needs and wants of each of my clients. 

Now, as a mother to two beautiful children + a cute dog, having aging parents and many siblings, nieces & nephews I have a keen perspective on what my client’s needs are for their growing lives and their growing home.
