Kristen Sweeney

Architectural Designer

When did you know you wanted to be an architect/designer?

When I was very good at drawing as a child, but too practical-minded to try and make a career as an artist – I did my eighth grade career research paper on the interior design profession.

What’s the biggest highlight of your career?

Getting to lead the charge on the ZIM NJ design effort, and having the client compliment the VR so highly and applaud how exact it looks compared to the finished space.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I love to sing, I don’t know if I’m I’m particularly talented at it but it’s fun to practice.

Where is your favorite travel destination?

Ireland – the cities, countryside, cliffs, ocean, and architecture are all so beautiful, plus the food and people are incredible.

What’s the technology this firm usesthat most consistently surprises and impresses clients?

I hope to be involved soon in creating renderings and VR environments, I find that clients are always very impressed when they can put on an Oculus headset and walk around their future workspace.
