Lauren Frank
Senior Interior Designer

Joined BWBR in 2015

Lauren is passionate about great design for health care environments, and how it can positively impact lives. She enjoys focusing on design solutions for patients and staff alike, specifically on the importance of incorporating healing areas of respite for anyone using the space. She has designed interiors for both new and renovated spaces and has worked on a wide variety of project types, from large critical access hospitals, to education, to both small and complex renovations.

“Passion for great design and how it can positively impact lives is why my job is more than a job. I’ve seen firsthand with my Grandma how good design helps the healing process. She responded better to treatments in well-designed facilities than some of the older facilities she was in at first. This translates into all sectors of design as well, not just health care. For me, great design is more than just a cool idea or concept. It is going beyond that; getting to know and working with clients to be able to provide the best solution for them. Helping people thrive in the spaces they are in and seeing people get excited about their space again is what fuels my excitement for the work we do.”
