BRENDAN FORRISTAL

Architectural Designer

Brendan received his Bachelor of Architecture from Drexel University in 2016. Having lived in Philadelphia since 2010, he has had the opportunity to work in several areas of the city on a multitude of projects requiring a variety of skills and responsibilities. These experiences range from row home renovation on Baltimore Avenue, historic preservation in Old City, design/build furniture in Northern Liberties, ground up Tiny House build on Drexel University’s campus, to coordinating Interior Design quality control on the Comcast Technology Tower in Center City. It has been a fulfilling journey thus far with many more enlightening, educational memories to come.
