Lana Larson joined Progressive Architecture in June 2017 as our Senior Interior Designer. She has spent the bulk of her career in the corporate sector working at a wide variety of large companies throughout the Twin Cities. Lana provides seasoned experience in Project Management, Space Planning, Strategic Design, Interior Construction and Remodeling projects and enjoys communicating with clients and contractors throughout the entire design process.
“It really is a challenge and team effort to create environments that a wide breadth of individuals use. Designing spaces where people work, live or visit is a privilege.
I’m so happy I took my favorite aunt’s advice when she pointed out that rearranging my room was my favorite thing to do…
Interior Design is a manifestation of my childhood hobby.”
For many years, Lana has leaned towards the technical side of the design process and execution, and at Progressive Architecture she hopes to re-ignite the creativity and tactile (softer) aspects design. She looks forward to changing things up on the types of spaces Progressive designs as well as transferring her extensive AutoCAD skills into efficient Revit use. Wearing many hats is something with which Lana is quite familiar, so she intends to maximize that ability at Progressive. Lana does not have much unscheduled time when managing a family of five but she knows these days with her kids are limited.
“I am learning to appreciate the school projects, homework days and our many journeys to practices/games/competitions for Hockey, Lacrosse, Football and Dance. I love cheering my kids on and seeing their eyes when they win a hard earned game or perfect a new skill they’ve been working on for long time. It truly makes it all worth the effort. When my weekends and evenings are not fully booked, I immensely enjoy shopping and/or a long run on a great trail with my music blasting away.”
