About 

Charlotte Ensign grew up in Washington DC where her drive for creative expression was encouraged by parents from architecture and design backgrounds.  After a childhood and adolescence of exploring as many artistic mediums as possible, Charlotte left DC for New York City on a full portfolio scholarship granted by Parsons the New School for Design.  During her studies, Charlotte received awards and honors from the university and other organizations such as the American Institute of Architects for her achievements in design and academics. 

Upon graduating Parsons with a Fine Arts degree in Architectural Design, Charlotte headed straight into the professional realm.  She has worked in the high end residential architecture field alongside Steven Yang since 2013.  Her passion for creating art has evolved into a holistic approach to developing architectural designs.  Charlotte utilizes her understanding of aesthetics and materials to create harmonious spaces that are not only comfortable, but beautiful. 

When she isn’t working, Charlotte seeks out nature.  Her heaven is a quiet beach with a great book.
