Allison Brandt comes to SAR+ with a wealth of experience in the field – even though her path to architecture was not such a straightforward one. When she graduated with her undergraduate degree in Science Business, she started out non-profit work with environment organizations. In fact, the outdoors (and a position with Outward Bound) brought her to Colorado. Eventually, her interest in architecture’s distinct blend of art and science drove her to complete her Master’s in Architecture.
She has since worked at some of Denver’s most prestigious firms before making her way to SAR+ at the end of 2020. Her experience lies mostly in public work, higher education, and commercial office. One of her most formative experiences was working on the Wyoming Welcome Center (completed at AMD Architects) because of the Center’s materiality and the way it engages with its context. We are excited to see how her leadership and expertise in the entitlements process, documentation, and consultant coordination positively impact SAR+’s future. She’s passionate about creating buildings that offer a distinct experience, and she’s committed to maintaining design intent for the duration of a project.
