​Investing in the Future

Architects never stop learning their craft. It is in this spirit that we welcome prospective designers here to test the waters. We’re fortunate now to have three students under our broad roof gaining experience in the profession.

Tanya Gianitsos hails from Old Saybrook High School, where she is a junior. Hoping to pursue a degree in architecture, Tanya’s internship includes two weekly visits that will span her entire academic year. Last fall, she developed her own design for a Greek church, which she is refining this semester into renderings and a 3D model.

Lindsey Lent, a senior at nearby Valley Regional High School, is with us during her spring semester to complete her capstone internship. She is hands-on with Revit and Lumion rendering software.

Our newest protégé is Adrienne Sieverding (pictured above with Associate Principal Justin Hedde). An architectural studies major in her final semester at Connecticut College, Adrienne came to us by way of Associate Principal Elizabeth Hedde, who was her instructor in an architectural drafting course. The daughter of an architect, Adrienne is assisting with one of our prominent projects currently in concept development.

Tanya, Lindsey, and Adrienne bring a refreshing view of the profession with their presence and their enthusiasm. We look forward to their growth and contributions and hope they return to us someday.
