Ann’s passion is reusing and renovating community buildings by providing great design that creates both aesthetically and functionally dynamic places. She is skilled in the comprehensive management of projects, which ensures a seamless process. Figuring out how to best knit the needs of the user into the framework of an existing building is a challenge that Ann loves to take on. Her desire to create meaningful architecture that’s open and accessible guides her work on civic buildings and libraries. She is especially proud of the Oliver Art Center that successfully transformed a building designed for coast guard functions into a LEED Platinum public venue and cultural destination.
“We can use the built environment to create a better world not just aesthetically, but also to improve how people live, work and play.”
