Elizabeth Roach, AIA, LEED AP


Elizabeth Roach’s background includes considerable experience in developing custom residential design in New York City. Skilled in working with clients from concept design to construction administration, Beth notes that her favorite project “is always the one I’m working on. The focus to keep moving forward forces one to put it first, love it most."

Finding personal inspiration in the work of Finnish architect Alvar Aalto among others, Beth also sees architectural beauty in unexpected places. “Some of the country’s least appreciated structures are grain silos,” she notes. “I see them as beautiful works of industrial architecture that are a result of pure function.”
