If architects feel like Holmes gets them, Katy Faix may bear some credit. An architect herself, she collaborated on the Red Star Line Museum in Antwerp and worked on a study of New York Metropolitan Opera prior to joining Holmes. Katy champions the firm’s Marketing and Business Development efforts throughout the United States.
To Katy, leading the design process and understanding clients’ needs and goals isn’t about managing calendars and celebrating successes; it’s about explaining technical information clearly throughout a project. The work is close to Katy’s heart, and she doesn’t stop thinking about inhabitable spaces when she leaves the office. She served three years on the Planning Commission in Orinda.
