Joined BWBR in 2018

Melanie is a registered architect with fifteen years of experience from conceptual planning to construction administration. She designs solutions to help people. She sees design as an aesthetic, conceptual, technical, and financial solution which transforms dreams into a meaningful place.

“I love to walk around my neighborhood because it opens all kinds of doors — new acquaintances and their pets, new restaurants, and new shops. Taking the time to immerse myself in my community helps me see how I can better serve others through architecture. How can this design make the neighborhood more walkable? What kinds of connections can we intentionally make? Walking puts concepts into real-world experiences.”
