A member of the firm since 2010, Alexis believes in the quiet power of architecture to enable, enrich, and empower the human spirit. She strives to create mindful spaces sensitively tailored to their users.
Alexis completed her Master’s Degree in Architecture at the University of Michigan where she was awarded the Joseph and Elsie Lee Scholarship, given to the student who shows the most balanced and integrated approach to the design of human space, among other accolades. Her thesis work examined the effects of consumerism on individuals and environments. She received her Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, graduating with high honors after attending the university on a Chick Evans Scholarship.
Alexis’s focuses in the firm include design for seniors and for those with physical disabilities. She is well versed in accessible design’s many considerations and received her Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification (EDAC) in September of 2014.
She is keenly interested in the impact of design on communities and has been a leading member of AIA Chicago’s Community Interface Committee (CIC) since 2011.
When she’s not at her desk, Alexis is most likely scouring the city on her next design quest, playing beach volleyball, practicing her salsa and swing dance moves, or exploring new places around the world.
