Irena received her Master’s Degree in Architecture from the Georgian State Technical University and worked 16+ years as an architect for the State Institute of Urban Development in Republic of Georgia. After moving to the USA in 2000, Irena continued her dedication to the profession, obtaining Architect’s Registration with NCARB and License in the state of Indiana. Irena worked for Architura some years back but left us to pursue other ventures. When we found ourselves needing some help, we asked Irena if she was interest in coming back. She says that she feels like this is home and is thrilled to be back at Architura. Irena is involved in various projects including master planning, historical renovation, and commercial construction.
Irena believes that the power of architecture extends much further than just designing “physical” buildings and it is about creating an environment that inspires peoples’ lives while addressing the practical.
Irena’s philosophy is “to always listen to the client” and she takes any challenges to achieve the right solution for the client’s needs.
Irena is a big fan of French Impressionism. She volunteers from time to time at the Indianapolis Art Center.
