Katie Martin

“Architecture is a lot like wine. It can be complex and transformative like the works of Frank Gehry. It can be bold and robust like the style of Zaha Hadid. It can be heavy and structured like the designs of Louis Kahn. Sometimes it’s bland and sometimes it’s elegant, but it’s still unique to its creator; its vintner. It may take years to develop and come to fruition, but in the end you hope for a smooth finish.“

Katie has experience in all phases of design, including schematic design, design development, construction documents and construction administration. As part of our Commercial Studio, Katie has worked on a variety of commercial projects including new construction, renovations, and tenant upfits.

When not in the office creating spectacular commercial architecture, Katie loves to travel with her family.

She began her love for traveling, architecture, wine and food on her first trip to Rome when she was 17. Ever since, she hasn’t been able to get enough. Fortunately, she married an Architect who has also been brainwashed to love those things as much as she does.
