Taleen Josefsson, NCARB CPHC

Thrive Project Leader at Chetwoods | Founder of @the_holistic_architect

In realizing an acute need for holistic approaches to sustainably tackling the complex environmental and social issues facing current and future populations, I have become devoted to promoting healthy, low-energy built environment solutions that strengthen local communities, economies, and biodiversity. I am particularly interested in designing for the circular economy, as well as life cycle analysis and material selection in regard to calculating operational and embodied energy.

I am an architect with a M.Sc. in sustainable development in architecture and planning. Prior to graduate school, I worked in the architecture and interior design field in the New York Metropolitan Area for 5 years after graduating with a B. Arch. from Cornell University. My previous work includes a range of private residential as well as government-backed affordable housing projects.
