Maria Alejandra Chamme

Brooklyn, NY, US



With my masters in Architecture and Urban Planning from the U.N.C.,  Argentina I have worked for the last 6 years consulting with US firms both remotely and in–house.   Collaborating in different firms I have gained experience working in Hospitality, Commercial, Residential & TI, most of them being large scale developments in the US.  This experience gives me the flexibility to easily adjust to any team and office standards within a short time.
I have been involved in all phases of projects from SD to CD’s.  This has given me expertise in Interior Design and Architecture as well as working with consultants and vendors.

Time spent in my home country and my local license has allowed me to run my own projects and practice architecture in a smaller scale, focused on the design phase.

Now I am looking for be part of an office where I can bring my previous experience to the team and allow me to continue learning and developing my skills in the architecture and design fields.
