As an architect with over 24 years of experience, Sara’s interior design focus has been largely influenced by her having grown up in Manhattan, where she became exposed to a rich and diverse amalgam of architectural interiors. Guided by an acute awareness of a space’s power to affect mood and behavior, she seeks to gain a holistic understanding of how users engage with their environment through nurturing in-depth relationships with clients and leading a design process informed by a comprehensive synthesis of aspirations, use-patterns, and technical and programmatic requirements.
Sara’s diverse experience includes interior design, architecture and adaptive reuse projects for Brookfield Properties, Atlantic Theatre Company, Google, Equinox, Knoll, The Scarsdale Public Library, Brooklyn College Feirstein School of Cinema, NYU Langone, New York Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell. Sara maintains an active leadership role in the IIDA NY Chapter and frequently participates as a guest speaker, panelist and juror in the interior design industry on a national level on topics such as Wellness, Placemaking and Branded Interiors.
