Samantha J. Kraft, IIDA Affiliate
Senior Designer/ Project Manager
Samantha Kraft is special.
Sam is a genuine talent, a graduate of the University of Cincinnati - consistently ranked as the top Interior Design program in the country - with a B. Int. Des. Prior to joining our staff in 2006, Sam worked for the Wilson Group in Dallas, TX, which is the number two hospitality design form in the world. Sam’s last project there was the Hilton Hotel in Warsaw, Poland.
After joining our office, Sam appeared on the cover of Interiors and Sources, a national design trade publication, as one of the top young design professionals in the United States. Sam’s projects reflect a refined approach to materials and finishes and the integration of fixtures, furnishings and equipment. Her work also reflects an exceptional spark with color to give each project a character and depth that makes ‘place’ out of ‘space.’
Her most impressive projects have garnered local and national design awards and include the renovation of the Higbee Building for the Greater Cleveland Partnership and Positively Cleveland, and the renovation of the Galleria at Erieview for Dollar Bank, both of which were challenging projects completed on time and on budget. She is also responsible for Pepper Hamilton in Pittsburgh and the new TransDigm Group HQ in Cleveland.
Sam is an impressibly happy person. Clients adore her for all of the right reasons. Sam is technologically advanced, yet patient. Sam is married with a daughter and two sons.
