Anna Mihkels, AIA, LEED AP, has been a principal at Group3 architects for the last 7 years.
Group3 focuses primarily on residential work and the firm’s clients all fit in the same category of ‘wonderful people’, which makes collaboration an absolute joy. Anna favors simple design solutions that have a twist of the unexpected, that are fun yet considered, making space that feels right, and real.
Together with her husband, Anna spent the last ten years tearing down and rebuilding her family's 1950’s home. She believes that wearing a tool belt and knowing how to operate power tools makes her a better Architect and detailer.
Outside of the studio, Anna finds other outlets for her creativity. When she couldn't find a cool baby gate for her daughter, Linnea, she decided to – just make one! The back yard playhouse project turned into an opportunity to design and install a green roof. Knitting and sewing while others sleep gives Anna more opportunities to blend 'making' and art.
Anna has a master in Architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania, is licensed in the State of Washington and is LEED accredited.
