Karen Greene, RA LEED AP
As much as Karen loves cities and the built environment, nature is a consistent inspiration. Drawing on the economy, wisdom, and beauty of natural colors and forms, Karen aims to provide practical, durable, and intelligent architectural solutions with sometimes unexpected or quirky aesthetics unique to each project and client.
An architect with 28 years of experience, Karen’s focus at Bruner/Cott is planning, programming, and space analysis. In designing the interior environment for projects such as the Lesley University Lunder Arts Center and Boston University’s Center for Student Services and School of Law, Karen understands how design impacts behavior and how behavior shapes place. She gives thoughtful attention to every design decision and the implications of each choice on the overall outcome of the project. Her human-centered design approach means that every detail—from the materials to the lighting to the nuances of color—is important. She strives to make her projects better and more beautiful than anticipated.
Karen has been drawing buildings and designing floor plans since she was a child. Before joining Bruner/Cott, she spent 15 years at CBT, where her projects featured a number of university and prep school projects, including residence halls, classrooms, and dining areas, as well as renovations and new construction for finance and law firms.
Karen lives in Norfolk, MA, in an 1830 Greek revival farmhouse with her husband, three children, and two cats. You’ll often find her hiking or biking on the nearby wooded trails, delighting in the beauty around her.
