Elise LaPaglia

Elise is most intrigued by the relationship between people and their environments. She approaches each project with an ardent eye for detail and organization. Her architectural interests are focused around design that is sensitive to place, culture, and local materials.

Elise is an enthusiastic advocate for sustainable design – both for the environment and for humankind. It is most important to craft space which enhances both human health and well-being while efficiently performing its intended function.

Prior to joining Overland, Elise has experience in a breadth of corporate/commercial, workplace strategy, education, healthcare, and hospitality projects. She also conducted a yearlong, deep-dive research study into Generation Z and their expectations for the future of workplace design.

Elise received her Master of Architecture degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design with her graduate thesis project exploring structure, materiality, and subconscious experience of space, culminating in an 8-foot-tall installation made from 4,700 dry-stacked bricks.
