Chelsea Constantino

Designer

Chelsea takes a project from schematic design to construction, providing space and test fit planning to make sure the interior and materials have a polished, aesthetically pleasing feel. She assists in managing client communications, ensuring that projects meets budget and client expectations. Recently she has worked on the Alloy 26 co-working office space, the law firm of Matis Baum O’Connor and classroom renovations at the University of Pittsburgh’s Salk Hall. “These clients were specific about their needs,” she observes. “I made sure that the finishes, lighting and layout were exactly what they were looking for.  Putting the client first is always a priority.”

A graduate of La Roche College in Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, and member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the Network of the Hospitality Industry (NEWH), Chelsea is motivated by the constant change inherent in her field. “Nothing is ever static, every season and/or year there is a new trend in design.”  She is especially inspired by new things and places. “Seeing the architecture, street art, and the culture of how other people live” provides a source of fresh ideas, helping her “create something extraordinary from the ordinary.”  This could be anywhere from the streets of Pittsburgh to London or Paris. “I like to find different places like restaurants, stores, events, and so on that most people haven’t heard of.”  When not working, “I like to plan where I can go next especially if it’s somewhere I’ve never been before.”
