Principal, Interior Design Director, New York, Perkins and Will
Brent has always been keenly aware of his surroundings. Even before he knew there was a word for it, he wanted to have a hand in creating, shaping, understanding, representing, and interacting with physical space. He still remembers the day his dad showed him the word “architect” in the dictionary.
Born and raised in Colorado, the intensity of the natural environment has impacted Brent’s approach to design. He is drawn to spaces that, like nature, have a temporal quality—changing and modifying over time.
Often described as aspirational in his approach, his work reflects a clear ethos, telling a story that supports the user’s experience.
