Her architectural practice NEMESTUDIO, which is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, has been recognized with several awards, most recently the Architectural League New York Prize for Young Architects, multiple citations at The Architects' Newspaper Best of Design Awards, a Notable Award at the Core 77 Design Awards.
