Peggy Schindler brings 20+ years of professional interior architecture and design experience to CSHQA. As a Senior Project Manager, she listens to the wants and needs of our clients and works with them to design a space that meets or exceeds the program requirements. Specializing in restaurant design, she has designed 100’s of restaurants across the country!
Peggy loves the “puzzle” of organizing space in a building to make the flow as intuitive as possible; desiring the end-user to love being in the space, feel a bit inspired, and comfortable enough to want to hang out and relax…even for a moment!
As a child, Peggy, would make her Mom crazy by frequently rearranging her room. She loved making it feel new again and working with the space to make it feel great to be in. It seems she was destined to be an interior architect!
One of the highlights of Peggy’s career thus far, was receiving a call from the Ft. Collins Historical Society, thanking her for restoring a beautiful early 1900’s era brick building in Ft. Collins, Colorado and revitalizing the block! Peggy worked with Tiffani Norman to bring back the building that had been shrouded by a horrendous, mustard-colored, mansard roof, fake stucco, and timbers. With much thought and patience, they succeeded in restoring the original brick and character back into this period building. The design included creating a roof-top patio that patrons of the restaurant (that now occupies the building) enjoy.
Peggy is a mountain girl at heart! She enjoys experiencing everything that Colorado offers with family and friends, and is currently trying to learn fly-fishing! She is also actively involved in the community and has volunteered with various organizations including: Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, and Denver Municipal Animal Shelter.
