Amanda RienthNCIDQ, LEED GA
Principal, New York
Amanda dissolves the boundaries between architecture and interior design, seeing design as a continuum where all participants play an active role in shaping the human experience.
She builds strong, enduring relationships with her clients and commits to being extremely involved with her projects from start to finish. She guides civic, academic, and cultural institutions throughout the planning and design process, translating an institution’s goals and objectives into a physical framework for implementation. From preparing detailed space programs to developing comprehensive master plans, her training in interior design gives her a unique approach in shaping and giving character to interior spaces. Her sophisticated yet practical sense of material, detail, and color highlight the characteristics that make each space reflective of its location and culture as well as supportive of its pragmatic uses.
An NCIDQ certified Interior Designer, she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design from the University of North Texas. Amanda volunteers extensively for the Council for Interior Design Qualifications (CIDQ) and actively participates in the International Interior Design Association (IIDA). With extensive expertise in both public and academic libraries, she is also a member of the American Library Association (ALA) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
