About Euginie Kwan

Euginie KwanEuginie Kwan is an architectural professional based in Boston. She received her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Carnegie Mellon University in May 2011, with a minor concentration in Architectural History.

She believes in an integrated approach to architecture and has experience contributing to residential, commercial, civic and historic preservation projects in a variety of capacities. She has worked for Simonchee Architects (HK) and is always on the lookout for new opportunities to expand her career pursuits. Her professional interests include sustainable technologies, green building, adaptive reuse and historic preservation.

Euginie’s interest in historic architecture and preservation has led to her pursuit of active projects in conservation and adaptive reuse. She has interned with the Madison Trust for Historic Preservation as the Coordinator of the 2012 Winter Workshop series which promotes sustainable retrofit and renovation projects to historic homeowners in the Dane County, WI area, worked with the National Park Service (NPS) to further the development of historical sites in the Greater Boston Area, and conducted research for the Chinese University of Hong Kong for existing and potential restoration projects in the area.

As an avid traveler, and having lived in and experienced various regional and international locales, Euginie is constantly observing architectural trends from different parts of the world as a primary means of influencing her own work. Outside of the world of architecture, she likes to spend her free time reading books, listening to music, volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and the local animal shelter, and playing as much Ultimate Frisbee as possible.
