My name is Laura Cañas. I am an architect and interior designer based in Medellin, Colombia, but I have completed projects for several companies in the United States and worldwide.

Currently, I have an architecture and interior design firm of my own located in Medellin. However, I am also looking for new opportunities and challenges to apply not just my design skills but also my leadership, working under pressure, budget management, managing employees, and dealing with clients from different cultures.

Although I am an Architect, my primary speciality is interior design because, with my experience, I have learned to understand the client's requirements, define the style to use, and have a good design process from start to finish that helps to have outstanding results.

Skills: Client management, the definition of concept and style, complete development of the interior design project (rendered images, 3d model, video), development of the necessary architectural planimetry & construction details (sections, plans, facades, etc.).
