Michelle Linden
Principal Architect, Co-Owner of Atelier Drome

Originally from Gloucester, Massachusetts, Michelle Linden’s appreciation for large cities eventually led her to the Illinois Institute of Technology, located in Chicago. During her time in the Windy City, Michelle worked for a variety of firms with established roots in sustainable design in addition to a term studying abroad at the Technical University of Delft, in the Netherlands.

Following her graduation, Michelle went on to work for firms in Honolulu and then Seattle, before deciding to start her own business and later merge with now co-owner Henry Walters in 2012. Having seen the impact of housing on families first hand with parents in social work and her mother working for a housing authority, Michelle continued her passion for community-centric design with the goal of creating a positive impact on families, businesses and neighborhoods as a whole.
