Jennifer Bunsa, Founder and Principal
Born and raised in Miami, Jennifer Bunsa’s love of design, history and color was inspired from an early age by the city’s diverse culture and iconic architecture. She began her pursuit of design while studying color theory under Bernard Voichysonk (an understudy of Josef Albers during his time at Yale) at the University of Florida, where she received a Bachelor of Design in 2001.
While at UF, she also studied Architectural Theory under Caroline Constant, who at the time was researching and writing her book on design icon Eileen Gray. The exposure to this research ignited a strong passion and pursuit of knowledge for the decorative arts, which plays a crucial role in her work today.
Bunsa embarked on a study abroad program in Vincenza, Italy, where her love of interior detailing blossomed after touring and sketching many spaces designed by Carlo Scarpa and Gio Ponti. This experience deepened her interest in design and led her to pursue a Master of Architecture from Harvard University, where she focused her studies on materiality under Toshiko Mori, who was her thesis advisor.
Upon completing her studies, she gained her professional experience working at the globally renowned firm Rogers Marvel Architects in New York. This prepared her to later launch her own design firm in Brooklyn, curating spaces throughout the city, upstate New York and across the country. In 2016, she relocated with her family to Miami, where she works with a diverse range of clients from Florida, Colorado, New York, North Carolina, the Caribbean and beyond. She loves all aspects of design, traveling, music and impromptu dance parties with her 6-year-old son, Jack.
