Dean Maddalena

Principal
Founder & President

As a creative entrepreneur, I am deeply passionate about crafting interior designs that transform visions into reality, serving as backdrops for life’s experiences across generations. Blending creativity with utility, I turn abstract ideas into tangible, inspiring spaces and products that transcend mere aesthetics — they enrich lives. Driven by the thrill of transforming environments, I aim to unite people, enhance life’s moments, and foster a sense of community.

Karla M. Jackson

Principal
Director of Senior Living Studio

Years ago, a personal tragedy revealed the grim reality of senior living options—places no one would willingly choose to call their home. Motivated by this, I refocused and dedicated my design career to transforming these environments. My goal is to create vibrant, meaningful living spaces that our loved ones truly deserve and are delighted to call home.

Claire Richards

Principal
Studio Director
Creativity is at my core which can be a blessing and a curse. I have always had a love of art, film, music, and theatre. Design is an essential outlet for this creativity, and I use it to bring the physical environment to life for residents in all walks of life. Aesthetics matter and human beings are deeply affected by their surroundings. Design to me is a force for good to make lives better and to leave something beautiful behind.

Shauna Revo

Principal
Senior Project Manager

The psychology of space has always intrigued me, the interaction between people and the space they inhabit. The ability to impact this interaction drives me, while my work affords me the opportunity to let design and space inspire me every day. This drive and inspiration have played an instrumental role in creating a movement to redefine and transform the concept of Senior Living and to explore and expand diverse living spaces, this is something I’m proud to be a part of.
