Clara Bulfoni, Junior Designer

Clara is the newest member of our team. Originally from Italy, Clara received her Architecture Degree in Ferrara and her professional license in Florence. During college and her exchange year in Portugal, she developed an interest in urban and landscape architecture, fascinated by the relationship between public and private space, built and unbuilt, between nature’s transitions and human flows. Before joining Geddes Ulinskas Architects she worked for a small but dynamic firm in her hometown, Udine, where she learned to appreciate the poetry of architecture on a smaller scale, mostly through residential projects, interior design for residences, retail stores, and landscape design. Inspired by nature, travels, landscapes and other cultures, Clara loves to design clean and modern spaces, highlighting contrasts between materials, patterns, colors and textures.
