Project Architect

Amanda began her work at Abitare Design Studio moving from New York City to Philadelphia in 2016. She obtained her Bachelor of Architecture degree at the University of Arkansas (Go Hogs). Since joining the firm, Amanda has participated on projects in every phase of design and construction, with a focus on multi-family housing and interiors. She approaches the design process through a careful consideration of the client’s needs, material selection, and construction details. Amanda lives in Center City and can be found walking the streets with her dog, Indy.


Abitare Design Studio brings a holistic approach to projects, blending impactful aesthetics with functional design to create innovative projects that enhance the human experience. No matter the size or scale of a project, Abitare prides itself on the level of detail we put into the planning and documentation to facilitate a smooth permitting and construction process. We work closely with our clients to ensure their expectations are met if not exceeded.
