Emily Bell
AIA, CPHC, Architect

As a project architect, Emily Bell enjoys the design challenges of working with existing buildings and complex program needs. She is currently working on the renovation of Emma Willard School’s Alumnae Chapel, converting the existing sanctuary into a flexible performing arts space. The project also includes a 15,000 SF addition for Dance, Orchestra and Studio Theater practice space. She leads the consultant team, manages the BIM model, oversees design deliverables, and is involved in all client design discussions. 

She was a key part of the construction administration team of one of the firm’s most complex academic projects, the transformation of a 195,000 SF Collegiate Gothic complex into Yale University’s new Humanities Quadrangle. Before joining the firm, she worked on several laboratory renovations for academic institutions, contributing to every design phase, from programming through construction administration.  

Emily is an active member of Women in Design at the BSA and leads the Design and Networking Committee.
