Regina Blauensteiner

Project Architect

Regina is a multidisciplinary designer who has a penchant for furniture design and a knack for developing inspiring facades. She honed her skills working on large-scale workplace and school campus projects, detailing their exteriors throughout her 13-year career. She merges technical expertise with design knowledge, and has worked on all project phases including, initial layout, detailing, construction documents, and site visits.

A natural collaborator, Regina has managed cross-cultural teams across continents, working as project manager and project architect. She worked extensively on the Vienna University of Economics and Business Campus — she was part of the Atelier Hitoshi Abe design team in Los Angeles and then helped realize the program on the ground in Vienna with Vasko + Partner Ingenieure, staying on the project through completion. She joined WRNS in early 2018 after spending five years running her own furniture and lighting studio, designing and making the pieces herself. At WRNS, she continues her passion for problem-solving. As part of the firm’s design team for Haskins Biotech, Regina oversaw the facade’s development. Currently, she helps with the Microsoft Redmond project, translating complex design into beautiful, functional reality.

Regina is a licensed architect in Austria. She holds a Master in Architecture from the University of Technology in Vienna, graduating with honors. She was awarded a scholarship to Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia. Following her coursework, she worked for several prominent architecture firms in Austria before relocating to San Francisco. On weekends, you’ll find her outdoors, biking to the beach or camping with her family.
