GMA Architects is excited to welcome our most recent Project Architect, Lani Walker. Lani holds a Master of Architecture degree from Southern Illinois University and has experience in designing both residential and retail facilities – ranging from 4,000 to 250,000 square feet. Lani’s role within GMA consists of designing and creating floor plans, exterior building elevations, 3D models, and photo-realistic renderings.
Lani enjoys creating exciting, efficient, and well-organized designs that will not only meet the client’s needs, but also inspire them. She gains great satisfaction from being apart of design decisions – from studying the structural design to the paint color, each has an effect on the people within the building. One of her most memorable projects was a new 4,000 square foot bank in which she studied both new and tried-and-true design styles, materials, and furniture in an effort to achieve the fresh, yet timeless style requested from the owner. In the end her hard work and dedication paid off, and Lani designed the look her client was seeking. Designing buildings and interiors that improve a client’s business, sales, brand recognition, and employee retention is what Lani enjoys most. In her free time Lani can be found spending time with her family, drawing, hiking, and/or traveling.
