I established Rosalyn Brandt Design Associates in Marin County in 1981, beginning as a commercial furniture specifier and art consultant and, through the years, expanded our services into the arena of space planning, lease consultation (with respect to the Tenant Improvement package), project supervision (during the construction build-out phase), and move management coordination.
My education and degree came from Barnard College (Columbia University) in New York. I began my career as a specifier for the architectural firm of Mascioni and Behrmann, Architects & Engineers, in Manhattan, in 1972. Continued education has been ongoing throughout my career, focusing on innovative sectors in the industry, such as energy conservation, ergonomics and environmentally green design and materials.
My work now focuses on both Tenant oriented work, as well as space planning and common area material specification for the Developer/Owner at the design or renovation phase of his/her commercial project. Work currently takes me throughout the Bay Area and, at times, to several other locations within and outside the State. I often incorporate opportunities to speak at high school career events to expose students not only to the field of interior design, but also to the many possibilities available to them through entrepreneurship.
