Lindsay established her career as an Architect and an educator by combining her knowledge of architectural technology with her background in psychology and research. In addition to private practice, Lindsay has instructed at Montana State University's School of Architecture in design studio and research seminars that focused on the overlap of design and human perception. Lindsay has also directed workshops and lectures on sustainability at the architectural school at the Universidad Latina in Costa Rica.
Within architectural practice, there is an emphasis on high performance net-zero-energy design, most notably ‘Passive Haus’ design. Efforts in the Rocky Mountain West have resulted in the first certified Passive House in Montana and the first net-zero-ready housing development in the Teton Valley region of Idaho. An intuitive designer and communicator, she creates solutions that relate a client's needs to the context of the project to arrive at healthy, beautiful space.
Lindsay is a founding board member of Passive House Rocky Mountains, a chapter of the North American Passive House Network, is a Certified Consultant for the Passive House Institute-US, certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, a LEED-Accredited Professional and a member of the American Institute of Architects. She holds architectural licenses in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming.
