About Katherine McBride, AKBD

I graduated from the Art Institute of Seattle’s Interior Design program with honors in June of 2017. Following graduation, I rapidly advanced in my career with Artisans Group, the leading firm in Passive House design in the nation, from Intern to Junior Designer, to my current position, Interior Designer. In November of 2018, my first project as lead designer received the distinction of Judge’s Choice, and People’s Choice Award for Best Home Remodel of 2018 by the Olympia Master Builders in Olympia, WA. My passion for architecture and design inspires me to create aesthetically pleasing interior spaces that are functional for the people who inhabit them. I view my role as a designer first and foremost, to carefully consider the wants and needs of my clients, and find the best way to give them the space that will suit their lifestyle and enhance livability. As central as this guiding principle is to how I approach projects, I know that design is not just about creating visually beautiful spaces. Great design starts with a profound understanding of the human element. Knowledge of how we live in and interact with our environment is paramount to implementing a successful design strategy. How we respond to the textures, light, and spatial arrangements of the built environment all contribute to our enhanced well-being, and improved functionality.
