Kristen Reardon



With a background in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design, Kristen is passionate about exploring the intersection between landscapes and urban environments. Her interest in urban ecological design culminated in an undergraduate research thesis on salamander crossings on Staten Island and led further graduate work on the environmental health of cities. She believes in the necessity of designing resilient urban landscapes informed by extensive risk analysis, particularly within a post-Sandy era. Prior to joining Starr Whitehouse, Kristen worked extensively on a diverse array of projects,  including shoreline restoration designs in the Hudson River Valley, and residential and commercial landscapes throughout the Tri-State Area. She has three years of experience and received a Masters of Science in Architecture and Urban Design from Columbia University.
