Michelle Carroll-Barr

Project Architect/ Interior Designer

Michelle’s interest in the built environment spans many different scales, with licensure and experience in both interior design and architecture. Having worked on both small-scale residential projects and large-scale commercial buildings, Michelle enjoys being nimble, but also bringing the same thoughtfulness and care to every design problem she works on. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Interior and Environmental Design from Illinois State University and working for a short time in residential design, Michelle made her way down South to attend Tulane University in New Orleans to acquire her Master’s in Architecture. More recently, Michelle has spent the last several years at the New Orleans firm Manning, working on a variety of institutional projects around the city. These experiences contributed to her passion for designs that serve the larger community and for the people of New Orleans. She is thrilled to build on her previous experience by focusing on Health and Wellness-based design projects and helping create beautiful and healthy spaces to serve whole communities.

Originally from Illinois near the Mississippi River, Michelle has enjoyed making New Orleans her home along with her husband and son. During her time away from the studio, Michelle and her family can often be found enjoying a Mardi Gras parade, attending a festival, cheering on the New Orleans Saints, or simply enjoying all the natural beauty Louisiana has to offer.
