Shelby Kintz, AIA, NCARB


Raised in a family of construction professionals, it’s not surprising that Shelby became a professional architect. She joined the Wightman Architecture Studio in 2013 and has built a career on finding practical methods for designing buildings that best fit her clients’ needs and budgets while fitting in as many “wants” as possible. Forefront in Shelby’s mind during the design process is how best to optimize spatial efficiencies and integrate sustainable design concepts while bringing the client’s vision to reality.

Personal Note

You’re as likely to find this learn-by-doing hobbyist knitting as you are to find her drag racing or cruising with her husband in their classic car.
