As a small child in a big world, Danielle Weaver was attracted to the effect space has on people. How it can evoke feelings, or how light and texture affect the experience of being in a certain place. Her appreciation drew her to historical buildings, and their preservation has been the focus of her career. Now a Senior Architect with CSHQA, Danielle is an impassioned advocate for saving historical structures and saving Idaho’s history and culture. She was a natural choice for CSHQA’s Idaho State Capitol renovation project. She worked on “The People’s House” for nearly 10 years.
Her historical-restoration and preservation projects span the country, but she also enjoys retail and commercial projects, such as Whole Foods stores. She is designing a new facility for an organization near to her heart, the Idaho Humane Society, which will give the animals (and the humans who care for them) more comfort and space.
You can often find Danielle scuba diving, backpacking, or just exploring new places—when she’s not coaching her twin boys’ soccer team or kicking the ball herself.
