Sara Dodson Holmes AIA

While her decision to attend Skidmore College as an undergraduate may have been heavily influenced by its outstanding equestrian program, it was here she fell in love with theater, soon becoming involved in all aspects of stagecraft. Knowing she wanted to follow a career in architecture and design, Sara earned a Bachelor of Science with a self-determined major incorporating studies in technical theater, art history, and studio art.

At the University of Pennsylvania, Sara’s studies ran the gamut from historic preservation to environmental building simulation eventually earning a Master of Architecture at the Graduate School of Fine Arts (now called the School of Design).

Sara has been with Wyeth Architects since 2009 working on numerous residential and institutional projects. Prior to this she worked at Centerbrook Architects and Planners in Essex, CT where she was involved in many different project types including museums, independent schools, student centers, research laboratories, and athletic centers.

Sara is passionate about sustainability and is a LEED professional and recently earned her Passive House certification (Certified Passive House Designer). Her dream home is a converted barn.
