Design Director, Associate
Throughout Eva's tenure at Shelton she has been able to explore and develop her immense talents in the residential scale, working intensively with clients through the process. She has an aptitude for creating a cohesive direction for a space or structure and prides herself in the ability to internalize a client's style and mold their ideas to create an elevated finished product. She has since grown into one of the first two named Associates of the firm, and is a Design Director on our residential projects.
Eva first received an Associates of Science in Photography from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh followed by a Bachelors of Interior Architecture from Chatham University. A number of personal residential renovations in between ignited her passion for design. Eva has gained valuable project experience having worked at firms such as Perkins Eastman and D2 Groups, immersed in the design and construction processes for a number of project typologies such as multi-family residential, senior living, higher education, and corporate design.
Eva grew up in the Washington DC area, but has been living in Pittsburgh since 2002. She currently resides in the North Hills with her husband and two children.
"What is your favorite design challenge or detail, used in a Shelton project?"
Our Roslyn 1914 project granted us with a unique task to nestle a small deck into an intensely manicured garden so that the client's could be one with the fruits of their labor. The footprint of the deck was to remain small, as to not eat too far into the established garden, which forced out-of-the-box thinking to create functional gathering space. The curvature of the hand carved stone walls, and an integrated curved deck & bench constructed out of an extremely dense Brazilian hardwood, presented a particular challenge in design and construction. It was a true collaboration between the client, myself, and our extremely talented carpenters and masons to create a finished product that far exceeded the client's expectations.
