Melanie Raines harnesses the power of space to intimately and measurably affect daily life. She has earned a reputation for her fearless and spirited design, honed in the world of boutique hotels and restaurants and refined by over a decade of experience as an architect across Copenhagen, New York, Los Angeles, and Austin. Never adhering to an aesthetic, but instead calculating the synthesis of human senses, her work is at once polished, rebellious, and often described as “un-design”. Melanie’s integrated approach delivers experience-forward spaces that calibrate, embrace, and celebrate the lives that inhabit them.
“To make living itself an art, that is the goal.” -Henry Miller
