People

We cultivate a practice of leaders: a collaboration among optimistic, empowered experts.

Suzanne Carlson, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP

Suzanne is known for her spirited sense of creativity and innovative design. As a principal in NBBJ’s New York studio who focuses on workplace design, she is skilled at understanding the psychology of space, at creating the most responsive environment to address the human and business drivers behind an organization. She aims to create a culture of collaboration and empowerment, both for her clients and within her own team.

Prior to joining NBBJ, Suzanne worked for 14 years on projects for Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy, Lazard Frères, BlackRock, a 2.2 million-square-foot build-to-suit development study for a global investment firm, and over 1 million square feet of merchandising space for Macy’s — the latest effort being a workplace strategy to pilot new company-wide design standards.
