Patreese balances a strong editorial design intuition with solid management skills, demonstrated by a remarkably varied range of award-winning and nationally-recognized projects, including master plans, single family residences as well as academic and cultural projects. She is inspired to find the strategic differential for each project, consistent with the humane values that guide Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s design culture: environmental sensitivity, the specifics of place and people, and intellectual rigor. Her passion to advance design excellence through collaboration and mentorship has made her a sought-after adviser both at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson and in the profession. She has held numerous leadership roles including the Seattle Design Review Board, AIA Professional Practice Steering Committee, 2030 Task Force, and AIA Award Program juries. Patreese is a LEED BD+C Accredited Professional and holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania.
