Rebecca brings to her work a commitment to design excellence in connecting the interior and exterior experience. Her strength lies in her passion and ability to develop projects that are both functional and beautiful.

Rebecca’s meticulous attention to detail enhances her designs through a process that translates the aspirations of the client and KPF’s values into the built environment. She celebrates the collaborative relationships created throughout the process, from conception to construction, revealing well-crafted and creative solutions. Demonstrating this approach at a range of scales, Rebecca has been integral in the success of one of KPF’s smallest projects, the boutique luxury residential condominium 500 W 21st Steet, as well as the firm’s largest infrastructure project, Changi Airport Terminal 5.

Overseeing KPF’s residential and hotel planning projects, Rebecca brings more than a two-decade history of work in the US, Asia, and Europe, and the accompanying sensitivities of their specific geographic location and the international trends that transform neighborhoods. In London, a city less known for high-rise residential living, she led the planning of the 500-unit 40 Charter Street. She applied lessons from her extensive luxury residential planning in New York City to create a new form of neighborhood with a range of unit types and robust indoor and outdoor amenities within a single building in London. In Beijing, she led WF Central, a luxury retail and hospitality destination adjacent to the Forbidden City. Modern in its offering and experience, the project is sensitive to the traditional and historical neighborhood in which it stands.

Rebecca has served as a part-time faculty member at Parsons School of Design; a guest critic at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation and NYIT’s School of Architecture and Design; and a lecturer at Yale School of Architecture. Rebecca is a former term member of The Council of Foreign Relations. She is a registered architect in the State of New York.
