Associate Interior Designer, LMN Architects
Jenn is an interior designer with a focus on how design decisions impact human and environmental health. In addition to planning and designing interior environments that promote health and enhance the human experience, she is also passionate about the role interiors play in a building’s overall embodied carbon impact. Jenn led a case study that quantifies the overall embodied carbon of cyclical interior renovations at LMN and endeavors to find ways of lowering the embodied carbon of interiors over a building’s lifetime. She is on the Materials and Health Research group within the firm and helped launch a finish material library vetting process and a new waste stream process within the office. Her analysis of the impact of spatial qualities on human experiences led to the development of a metric for calculating curricular value of social interaction spaces. Jenn is also a main contributor to the local Healthy Material Collaborative, leading efforts to promote awareness for healthy building materials through public installations and engagement events at the Seattle Design Festival.
