My name is Emma Turbiarz. I moved to LA two years ago and have been working at Arshia Architects for the duration of this time. I believe my experience, background and passion for design will enable me to contribute to any team.

At my current firm I have worked on a numerous number of projects (mainly residential) from conceptual design right though to construction. Working in a small firm has given me the ability to learn new skills very quickly, handle multiple tasks at once and work efficiently while delivering a high standard of quality drawings that maintain design intent. Direct experience with extensive Construction Documentation , 3D modelling and renderings ranging from single family homes and apartment buildings to a tenant improvement for a family dental practice. The fast pace married with detailed expectations makes me uniquely qualified to assist with projects at your innovative firm.  

During my Master’s Degree I studied abroad for different studios at Columbia University and Harvard University. My final design studio at Columbia involved designing a transportation hub for the new design of Cornell Tech university on Manhattan Island. The project was to combine an education hub, subway stations and the F train line linking to Manhattan Island. Personally, I am very passionate about precise and stunning visual representation that lets you experience the space and architecture before it even happens.
