Meet The Team!
Sarah Kleiner, AIA, LEED AP
Sarah is a registered Architect with over 20 years of experience in the residential and commercial markets. She excels at balancing the aesthetic beauty of creative design with the functional and practical considerations of every project. She believes great design begins with you, the client, and that by asking you the right questions, she can get to the heart of your issues and concerns. Design is more than making a space look good, it's about solving problems and making your space work best for you.
"Listen to Mustn'ts, child, listen to the Don'ts.
Listen to the Shouldn'ts, the Impossibles, the Won'ts.
Listen to the Never Haves, then listen close to me.
Anything can happen, child, Anything can be."
