Kelly McEachern talks about how the pandemic is shifting office interiors and how using data-based solutions can best support an organization’s workplace needs

Kelly McEachern is a Senior Project Manager and Senior Designer in the Perkins&Will Austin Studio in the US, she is also a regional resource for the firm’s focus on Workplace Strategies.

She focuses on enhancing the pre-design, discovery phase of each project to align the client’s business strategies with the planning and design approach. Kelly believes a workspace must reinforce an organisation’s culture and values with human-centred solutions to connect the users and their specific work functions, and combines data-based solutions with planning creativity for a tailored workspace.

The 2022 WAN: Female Frontier Awards are open for entries and recognise the outstanding work from women of all ages, at every level across the global built environment. They promote best practices, new and established talent and celebrate the firms who are supporting women in their roles.

New categories include Innovation in Interior Design, Interior Designer of the Year and Emerging Interior Designer of the Year. There is a relevant category for all, whether you are at entry-level or the founder of your own practice.
