Casey joined SA+R in 2019 on the heels of the completion of her master’s degree at the University of California at Berkeley. While in school, Casey was a key player on a national award-winning low-income housing design project that focused on designing in tandem with a new hybrid tax credit structure that is now becoming widely utilized in cities across the country. During her studies she was also the recipient of a prestigious International Travel Fellowship where she focused on the study of architecture created by non-Architects in coastal desert environments. During this Fellowship she traveled to and met with people and professionals in their communities in 11 countries across the South Pacific Ocean, Caspian Sea, Persian Gulf, and Mediterranean Sea.
Throughout her studies, and in professional internship roles, Casey has maintained a strong focus on unique sustainable design solutions and creative designs targeted at enhancing civic spaces and their engagement with their communities. In one of these internship roles she also played a key role in the rehabilitation of a warehouse space in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood into the thriving Denver Central Market food hall project, a hub for activity in the city’s rapidly-changing arts district.
