Sharon Davis Design / Founder

Founder and principal Sharon Davis is an award-winning practitioner whose work is driven by a deep belief in the transformative power of design. In 2007, after a successful career in finance and having earned a master’s of architecture degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, Davis created her firm as a launching pad for collaborative design practice dedicated to human-centered environments around the globe.

Davis has received the Lucille Smyser Lowenfish Memorial Prize from Columbia University, and the Women for Women Active Citizen Award. Her dedication to the architectural community of New York and the profession more broadly is evident by her participation in multiple organizations including: the American Academy in Rome board of trustees and the Friends of the High Line board of directors.

Davis’ work, which ranges in scope from residential interiors to commercial ground-up construction to international institutional development, is driven both by a profound design talent and a strong mission of social and environmental responsibility. Sharon has also been an active member on the boards of the Van Alen Institute, Fresh Air Fund, the National Resources Defense Council and the Council for the New York Public Library.
