In a bit of a surprise, Schemata Workshop was recognized by @seaarchitecture in February. Sarah graciously accepted the Community Partner award on behalf of the office and shared these kind words with us:
“I'm so proud to have been able to accept this award for the office tonight. Stacy at SAF mentioned how involved and supportive we are with the many SAF programs - youth and & family programs, the design soirees, etc. She also highlighted our commitment to empowering diverse communities through design, our leadership in community engagement, our work with multiple design guidelines, and especially how encouraging the office is of staff to be really civically involved. It was really impressive to hear all of our accomplishments listed out the way Stacy had - we are doing great things together!
Thank you all for showing up the way you do - it's inspiring and nourishing. And thank you to Mike and Grace for creating this infectious culture.”
Our sincere appreciation goes out to our clients, friends, family and consultants who continue to support us as we enter our 14th year of practice!

N.B. Schemata Workshop will be closed from end of business December 22nd, reopening January 2nd.
Last month, Marijana Cvencek and David Witte were added to the Schemata Workshop roster. We are overjoyed to welcome these two engaged and thoughtful community leaders. You can read their bios in the staff page, but we thought we would continue the tradition of asking our newest coworkers off-the-beaten-track questions to get to know them.
Here are their answers:
