Hot Talent: Michelle Tremont Boyd

Michelle Tremont Boyd brings a wealth of experience to her growing design firm, launched in 2020. She followed a degree in architecture from Syracuse University with six years at Studio Sofield, a prestigious New York architectural design firm where she worked on luxury residential and retail projects. “It was a formative period for me,” she recalls. She subsequently spent four years as VP of store design and construction at now-shuttered Barneys New York.

During a recent three-year hiatus to have kids—now aged two and four—Tremont Boyd moved with her husband to Alexandria. Once there, the designer became restless.
“I wanted to get back to a creative space and missed the rigor and challenges of design work,” she observes. “Just as covid was at its height, I started networking—and I have found it to be a nice way to learn the community in DC.”

Tremont Boyd, who currently works solo and has five projects on her docket, favors a holistic approach. “I do interior architecture and design with a heavy renovation and construction component,” she explains. “I love to be part of the A to Z of a project—large scale and then zooming in to complete the details.”
