Nora Kelly

Architectural Designer

Nora joined the WRNS team in July 2019 after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Design from Stanford University, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. A performing arts enthusiast, throughout her coursework, she moonlighted as a set designer while honing her craft preparing design materials for various architecture firms. She approaches architecture as a theater production, marrying art and technique to create a well-curated atmosphere for the benefit of the community.

At the studio, Nora works on all phases of design, including managing the modeling process in BIM and overseeing construction documents. She has a deep appreciation for sustainability and looks forward to collaborating with her design fellows on a wide-range of projects.

An East Coast native, she grew up in Baltimore and spent her high school years in South Bend before making the migration West. In between, she spent time in New York and Madrid, furthering her exposure to different cultures and urban landscapes. She is fluent in French and Spanish, a published essayist, and is currently working towards her California architecture license. During her free time, she enjoys going to the theater, painting, and exploring San Francisco’s varied skyline.
