We are architects, but also thinkers and change agents.

Featured Work


Molly has served as Management Partner for many of the firm’s complex new construction and renovation projects across a range of sectors, including education, performing and visual arts, research, and commercial mixed-use.

The essential relationship between project management and project success is central to Molly’s approach to architecture. Throughout the planning, budgeting, design, and construction process, her management style fosters a collaborative environment marked by open communication, trust, and shared vision.
