Roxanne Sherbeck, FAIA


Roxanne was a Principal in our Pittsburgh office and the design lead on many extraordinary projects. Roxanne embraced the belief that people appreciate architecture that relates to their mind, bodies, and souls. From this belief, she has mastered an integrative design process that resulted in projects that provide for people’s tangible needs while achieving design excellence.

Sherbeck focused her career on creating places that are unique, engaging, and entwined with their context. Her humanist perspective, originality, and love of craft combined to allow her to design comfortable, dynamic, and character-rich places. Designing was Roxanne’s great passion, and she came to Architecture via a broad interest in the human experience, particularly through theater.

Roxanne began her nearly thirty-year professional career at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson in 1985. She was promoted to Senior Associate in 1999 and became a Principal in 2007, retiring in 2014. She was a graduate of the Architecture School at the University of Virginia and earned a Master of Fine Arts in Scenic and Costume Design from Carnegie Mellon University. Her design work earned wide professional recognition, and she was named a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 2014.
