While some may believe that interior design is primarily a visual form, to Lauren, it begins and ends with feeling—from the tactile nature of materials used to the sense of inhabiting a space. Her attentiveness to macro and micro design considerations is reflective in her portfolio, with projects that provide cues to their users about how to interact with their environment–and by extensions, themselves and their community.
Lauren earned her Bachelor of Architecture from Penn State, where she also studied business and liberal arts. Her thesis centered on creating non-programmable spaces for an abandoned sand/water filtration plant, helping her understand design’s potential to be regenerative and connective. Outside of architecture, Lauren enjoys hiking, surfing, camping, and connecting with the natural world.
