Green Rascal Design: Changing the World since 2010
We started messing around in the beginning of 2010, and "organized" in the summer of that year. Our practice is really a mishmash of architecture design, landscape design, graphics, temp help and inspiration.

Hi, I'm Hollie. Thank you for visiting!
I have a Masters of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, and I have a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Minnesota. Since then I've been a teacher, writer, designer, practitioner of tai chi and feng shui, chicken keeper and practitioner of permanent agriculture.
I'm a member of the US Green Building Council, the Delaware Valley Green Building Council, the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia and a contributing member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
My core competency is in organizing workflows, procedures and activities spatially into a basis of design that makes sense and is easy to navigate. This means I work best closely with stakeholders on overall schemes for buildings and sites of all sizes. Whether you're a home owner with a small space problem, a new urban neighborhood developer planning a brownfield project or a manufacturing company with a need for a new plant - I can help you get organized with a concept design.
I can also assist with and teach design softwares to other busy design professionals on a temporary basis. This is easy for me, and I'm always glad to help a friend out with a project. I'm quick and efficient and can come to your Philadelphia area office. So if you're an architect in a bind because you need more staff fast for a few days, I can come and crash on your project for a while. Or I can work from my office too. This includes CAD drawings and renderings in 2 or 3D.
Oh, and I know a lot of other architectural designers if you need more people. One of the other things I do really well is match people up or find things they need. I've been networking a lot in the past 3 years, and if you're looking for a specific kind of talent, I probably have a great referral for you.
The value I offer is a positive attitude, reliability, professionalism, respect, integrity and gratitude for you as a person/business and the world as a whole. If you tell me what you need, I'll do whatever it takes to make it happen or find somebody else who can. Just send me an email from the Contact page or at firstname.lastname@example.org
