Emily developed an interest in building science and sustainable design in college. She started Mottram Architecture in 2009, and that’s when I started doing energy work that taught me how to look at buildings just a little bit differently. That led Emily to start designing energy efficient, zero energy ready, and super insulated homes. But even that wasn’t enough. A home has to be comfortable, durable, healthy, and beautiful. Emily believes homes have an impact on your physical, social, mental and economic well-being. And that is the foundation that she built Mottram Architecture on. However, Emily isn't just an architect. she is a wife and mom to two fur-kids (Bastian, a min pin and Chase, a shepherd rescue). She loves to scuba dive, hike, kayak and read. She leads an adventurous life, whether it is traveling with her husband or taking my nieces and nephews on adventures. I became and architect because I wanted a challenge. I remain an architect because it’s rewarding and I get to design beautiful spaces that make people happy and healthy!
