Patricia Samartzis


Patricia is a creative force who balances human emotion with technical innovation. She’s drawn to life in between the buildings — having a keen interest in how architecture can better society, and shape and inform culture.

Patricia joined WRNS Studio in early 2019, after relocating to San Francisco from Atlanta, where she completed her coursework and started her career. Prior to making the move, Patricia worked at BLDGS, an award-winning architecture firm. Throughout her schooling, she worked for the Georgia Tech College of Design, both as a research and event coordinator, and as a teaching assistant. A natural and supportive leader, she advised and mentored the college’s exchange students, and co-taught an urban planning and design class. She has an insatiable appetite to learn, and is interested in exploring all aspects of architecture as it relates to the larger urban context. At WRNS, Patricia contributes to various phases of the design process including: conceptual design, schematics, design development, and construction documents.

Patricia received her Master of Architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology. She graduated from the School of Pedagogical & Technological Education, ASPETE in Athens, Greece, with an electrical engineering degree. Her school projects have won several awards, and her academic achievements have been recognized with scholarships and fellowships. She spends her free time taking in the city, studying people behind the lens of her camera.
