Rebekah Perez, Associate AIA

 

email: [email protected]

 

Rebekah Perez has particular interests in interior design and product design. She works on projects of all sizes, from complete design services -- including conceptual design, construction documents, and construction-phase services -- to finish and product selections for interior finish-outs and renovations. Rebekah has a great deal of hands-on experience with both commercial projects and residential work. She approaches design from both a pragmatic standpoint as well as a very creative and conceptual perspective; her goal is to create interiors which uniquely reflect the client's personality and needs.

In addition to professional services, Rebekah designs and builds furnishings which transform found objects into modern, functional art. Her work reflects a search for an original aesthetic as well as her enthusiasm for thoughtfully combining traditional forms and materials with new technology and practices.

Before joining Work5hop, Rebekah worked at Michael G. Imber Architects. She began her career at Ford, Powell & Carson Architects & Planners. Rebekah is a member of the Society of Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), where she volunteers for the communications committee.
