Kelly Hensler
Design Leader

Joined BWBR in 2020; previously at BWBR 2012-2014

Kelly Hensler is a design leader and workplace strategist based in Madison, Wis. With degrees in both architecture and interior design, her process focuses on the user experience both inside and out and how they work together holistically. Her designs are shaped by her deep knowledge in human experience through her time serving the community, teaching university studio design courses, analyzing data and statistics, and working both locally and internationally.

“I knew I wanted to be a designer at a young age, when I was faced with some physical challenges that helped me see the impact space can have on the people who use and experience it. Design has the ability to ignite a spark that can kindle hope, heal ecosystems, and lift others to their full potential. I find energy from strategizing and envisioning with clients about how their spaces can impact the lives of those who live, work, play, and heal in them. At the end of each day, my goal, through design, is to leave the world a little better than I found it.”
