Sandy, a member of the Mullen Heller Architecture team since 2012, is an Albuquerque native who ventured to the West Coast, only to find her way back home to the Land of Enchantment. She is tied to her deep roots here in New Mexico, and has been helping her clients fulfill their architectural ambitions with her enthusiastic design methods. Her ability to three-dimensionally craft ideas while at the same time push the boundaries of conventional construction has enhanced some of MHA’s recent projects. She flourishes in exploring new design approaches but stays grounded to the original principles of architecture: form and function.
She loves to design spaces centered on social interaction, environmental stewardship, and community engagement, such as the Los Alamos Nature Center and Country Club Plaza. From the first sketch to the day a building opens its doors, enjoying a well-designed space with thoughtful neighborhood impact is what she strives to do.
Favorite part of Mullen Heller projects: The diligently-crafted details that make each project unique.
The best place in the world to chill out: In an Adirondack chair on the beach at Paradise Cove, California.
When not working: Sandy, her husband and their two pups head out on urban adventures, always searching for the newest food truck sensation.
