Krista Dumkrieger AIA, NCARB
Krista is a Principal in the Mixed-Use Residential Studio. She has devoted her career to the design and construction of beautiful, livable multifamily and mixed-use developments since joining Cooper Carry in 2011. Krista graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelor of Architecture. It was that program’s semester in Rome, Italy that opened her eyes to multifamily housing as a historic building form spanning millennia, and its ability to be a beautiful, organic part of a community. Post-grad, she helped design and build single family housing for low-income families with Habitat for Humanity. There she grew an appreciation for designing within constraints and solving the puzzle of maximizing value while working under a tight budget. Today, Krista enjoys the challenges of articulating the client’s vision and translating it into a solution appropriate to the given environment and community; her aim, to build longstanding relationships with clients over the course of multiple projects. As she helps expand Cooper Carry’s footprint further west, she is eager to address the housing challenges of today with creative, adaptive, and regenerative design strategies. Krista’s recent projects include AMLI 3464 & AMLI Lenox in Atlanta, The Gadsden in Charleston, and Riverworks at Eastern Wharf in Savannah.
She’s a member of the American Institute of Architects, the Urban Land Institute, the International Living Future Institute and is NCARB certified. Krista enjoys being outdoors hiking and biking in her new home state of Colorado. She also enjoys crocheting, sewing, glass etching and a good murder mystery book.
