At C2 Design Group, people and their spaces are our passion!

All of our designs start and end with a discussion about people: who they are, what they like, what they need, what environmental design features will help them to foster communication of their own.

With this focus on people, we decided to share more about our own staff, their passions and how they define creativity…

Meet Sarah: Sarah just celebrated her fourth anniversary with C2!

Q: Why did you decide to pursue a career in architecture?
A: I always liked art and design. My passion for architecture started in high school when I took my first technology class that centered around AutoCad and architecture. Seeing my simple sketch on a piece of paper become a 2D drawing, and then become a physical model was an amazing experience. After that class, I took another one and from there I decided to pursue a path in architecture.

Q: Life at C2 – Most fond memory?
A: My fondest memory is completing my first project (The Reserve at Park South) as a project manager. The process of working with the client and bringing their vision to life was a great experience.

Q: What fuels you throughout the day?
A: Lattes.

Q: Schenectady has such a cool walkable downtown environment. Do you have a favorite lunch spot?
A: Ambition is always a favorite of mine. The sandwiches are great and the staff is always friendly.

Q: Interests or hobbies?
A: In my free time, I like to cook and try different foods.

Q: Do you have a favorite sports team?
I don’t have a favorite sports team, but I do enjoy watching the Olympics. I participated in dance, gymnastics, and crew when I was younger.

Q: If you could design anything, what would it be?
A: If I could design anything, it would be a bakery. My love of cooking and design knowledge could enhance an experience at a modern bakery.

Q: If you could share something you’ve learned or a piece of advice that was given to you, what would it be?
A: Time management and organization is key to a successful project. This skill is really helpful when balancing projects and tasks. Believe it or not, the better you’re able to plan your time, the more time you’ll be able to spend on producing work you are proud of. Not to mention, it helps with alleviating stress.
