CATHERINE LESKOWAT, Assoc. IALD, Assoc. IIDA, LEED AP ID+C

PROJECT DESIGNER

Catherine believes in designing for humans, and finding the beautifully simple solution to a design challenge. Every day is a chance to collaborate with other creative minds and leverage an understanding of light and human factors to create healthy built environments that bring delight to users. When she’s not obsessing over light and architecture, Catherine is usually cooking and eating her way across Boston, working on her photography skills, or traveling.
