Sheree  
holds a Bachelors degree (highest honors) in Architecture from Pratt Institute. While in Pratt Institute’s Architectural program (1985), she facilitated the new FGIC Co’s Wall Street office project from “ground up”. She chose and hired Emilio Ambasz (www.ambasz.com) as a designer, had input into specs, hired Larson Juster firm for construction drawings and onsite construction and had regular meetings with both parties to assure smooth process to completion. FGIC was a new idea product firm which could potentially expand. She “signed off” on many of Emilio’s out of the Wall Street box traditional office ideas. This was an award winning project featured in Architectural Record. ( Financial Guaranty Insurance Company )
She drew up a design plan for a challenging Greenwich Village Landmarks, 1799 Isaac-Hendricks House, at 77 Bedford St, a brownstone gut renovation and hired Emilio Ambasz to co-create a super contemporary interior. village preservation.org article: the-oldest-building-in-the-village
Prepared a design plan for a Greenwich, Ct home’s gut rebuild, inspired by Pratt Institute’s design modus operandi- human’s connected to Nature, not standing above -a la Frank Lloyd Wrights Japanese inspired buildings and specified that the home be connected to and work with nature with large ceiling to floor windows and inner flooring flowing into outer paving. She hired/worked with Warren Platner for design and construction drawings.
Worked with a crew to douse (and film the process) the 250 acres underlying energy lines for the Stillwater Wellness Resort enterprise in upstate New York. She prepared and designed the architectural plans for main, sweat lodge, outbuildings, etc. This became a part of unbuilt America. Favorite quote by Emilio Ambasz- “In reality some images or drawings have a greater impact than many buildings that are built.“
