Bryn Young

Principal Architect

Bryn specializes in projects of all scales, thinking of innovative designs and space planning to fit any need. She has a passion for design and is always looking to nature for inspiration.

She received her Masters in Architecture from NewSchool of Architecture & Design and holds undergraduate degrees in Interior Design, Entrepreneurship, and Small Business Management. Bryn has won multiple awards, including her Master's Thesis "Drought Tolerant Architecture".

Bryn is currently on the Board of Directors at the La Jolla Historical Society and an adjunct professor at Chico State. When she's not designing she loves to be outside hiking, camping, or exploring with her husband and two daughters.

"The relationship between our interior living space and the exterior environment is a huge inspiration for my designs. I believe architecture should blend with the natural world rather than compete with it."

Outside of architecture, Mykaela enjoys traveling, hiking, camping, rock climbing and pretty much anything where she can immerse herself in nature.

About : Testimonials

"Bryn Young re-imagined our small and cramped 1946 beach bungalow into a space that flows seamlessly from room to room, indoors to outdoors. She maximized usable space and natural light and created a wonderful indoor-outdoor flow which hadn’t existed before. Bryn’s knowledge and expertise in interior design shone through in her selection of materials and finishes for the house. We love our new home. Thank you Bryn!"
