If you weren’t an Interior Designer, what might you be? I would love to have my own small restaurant/bakery/bar combo featuring personal recipes for comfort food and my killer homemade pies.

How do you like to spend your free time? Doing anything outdoors especially if it involves water- boating, kayaking, & swimming.

Susan joined Silling Architects in May 2016 and brings a diverse experience within both the interior design and construction industries.  She brings a highly collaborative approach with architects and end users from the conceptual stage of the building project through completion to develop a cohesive concept through the selection of interior and exterior finishes, space planning, furniture and fixture choices.  For the past eighteen years Susan’s interior design experience has been focused in the Design/Build delivery method.

Susan has also spent years establishing accounts with national vendors to be able to purchase materials such as carpet, tile, etc. direct which impacts the projects  budget by providing tremendous cost savings which is passed on to the client. She also works closely with construction estimators to price new building projects by using her years of buying experience to offer value engineering to clients by suggesting less costly alternatives to already specified interiors.  Susan is responsible for maintaining a full “interior finishes” library and resource center for staff use.
