Stephanie’s passion for existing and historic buildings stems from a childhood immersed in England’s historical architecture and later exposure to a diversity of architectural styles when she moved around the United States. Throughout twenty-five-plus years of creative and technical practice working with historic, midcentury, and recent-past buildings for cultural icons, civic landmarks, and academic campuses, she has steadfastly advocated for the essential value of renovation and adaptive re-use—not simply to preserve architectural heritage, but to provide current and future generations with meaningful spaces of renewed and sustainable relevance. In the academic realm, she strives to support the educational mission by designing rich, multi-faceted student experiences in existing buildings, inclusive of libraries, student unions, and student residences.
