Lisa’s ability to interpret and design to her clients’ needs in addition to her awareness of diverse architectural styles brings a depth of knowledge and experience to Harrell Remodeling’s design/build team.
The most important and exciting phase of any design project is the initial space-planning and conceptual design, Lisa comments. After resolving the greater challenge of creating the most workable design, the endless list of fine details fall into place easily. From a single room to whole house remodels with additions, Lisa has guided private, commercial and public-sector clients in accomplishing architectural designs and construction objectives. From focused front-end interviews to helping clients refine how they want their space to look, feel, and perform, Lisa’s work focuses on her customer’s goals and style preferences.
Lisa’s work and dedication to design excellence has been recognized repeatedly by local and regional NARI awards, National CotY awards, National Chrysalis Awards, NKBA and other professional design associations. Several projects including her Minneapolis residence and custom furniture designs have been featured in Home Ideas, Better Homes and Gardens, Palo Alto Weekly, Los Altos Town Crier, South Bay Accents, Gentry, M Magazine, and several Sunset books. Lisa has written insightful articles on design for Fine Homebuilding, San Jose Magazine, Today’s Home and other publications.
Previously, Lisa co-owned a Minneapolis-based design company that had the opportunity among other engagements to work on the design project management of restoration of the Washington Monument. She holds an Interior Design degree from Paier College of Art in Hamden, CT and a B.A. from Boston College. Lisa is credentialed as a Certified Interior Designer (CID), Universal Design Certified Professional (UDCP) and Certified Green Building Professional (CGBP).
In her spare time, Lisa enjoys hiking, skiing, Chinese Calligraphy and baking artisan bread and bagels for her friends and family!
