Renée Roman, RA, LEED AP, Master Gardener
Senior Associate | Architect | Cabin & Ranch Studio Lead
Renée is a generalist architect with particular sensitivity and expertise in the residential project type, site issues, and environments for the arts. She completed her Bachelor of Environmental Design at the University of Colorado, summa cum laude, and her Master of Architecture at the University of Washington. Growing up outside of Philadelphia instilled an interest in historic places early on, and completing her master’s degree abroad in Rome clinched the deal.
Her career began at GGLO, working on the nationally-landmarked Eagles Auditorium Building (now the home to the ACT Contemporary Theater), and Bellweather affordable housing. At Leavengood Architects, Renée continued to work on a variety of historic projects for the National Park Service and Washington State. She also developed a unique niche in designing vacation homes, ranch projects, and working with artists and craftspeople. Her work on ranch projects gave her an opportunity to explore the relationship of land and the built environment by exploring land restoration, land planning, and the many unique subsets of structures and utilities in large land settings.
Renée is a member of the Seattle Art Museum, Vashon Center for the Arts, and Architects Without Borders. Renée is thrilled to be at Board & Vellum, where the design process is charged with enthusiasm, and talent is boundless for creating timeless environments.
