Stella Osborn

Atlanta, GA, US



I am a licensed architect having worked in Atlanta, Tampa and Los Angeles with work throughout the US, and hold 2 degrees from the Georgia Tech School of Architecture. I have almost 19 years experience in designing and managing the construction of various building types including Private Schools, Athletic Facilities, Commercial Kitchens, Daycares, Healthcare, Retail, Post-Production Facilities, as well as Residential work.

I have a variety of experience and interest throughout all phases of drawing production and also enjoy the construction process.

I have the rigor, dedication and understanding of the need to be a visionary in planning for the future as well as being detail-oriented to execute projects.  My role for each project fluctuates, including, assessing the needs of the Owners / occupants, understanding the program, completing a set of Construction Drawings as well as managing the construction phase. I enjoy the change in scale of each project – being able to look at certain projects holistically, to imagine the ‘big picture’, while others require me to really zoom in and focus on the details. I truly enjoy the challenge of each project’s special goals and user needs. 

My skills / specialties include attention to detail, asking questions, trouble-shooting and offering multiple solutions.

I am originally from Athens, Greece and moved to the US at the age of 8 years old. After leaving Greece, I have resided in New York City, Tampa Bay, Paris, Los Angeles and ultimately Atlanta for the majority of the last 16 years.  My free time is spent with my two daughters & close friends; Interests include cooking, hiking, watching movies, listening to the Good Food podcast, doing Crossfit and traveling when possible.
