Coming from a background of base building architecture with a focus on adaptive reuse of existing infrastructure, Michelle holds an ongoing passion for all scales of design. Her career has been focused mainly on workplace design--bridging the gap between corporate interiors and hospitality environments. Having a broad range of interdisciplinary experiences in addition to the built environment, she has designed and fabricated furniture and temporary installations and has assisted in the design of magazines to websites. These diverse experiences translate well into creating innovative, tailored solutions within the constraints of existing space.
