Athena Lorenz
Lead Designer, Vāstu Consultant + Owner

BFA in Commercial Interior Architecture with an emphasis on Sustainable Design from Marylhurst University
Vāstu Certifications in Residential Design, Landscape Design + Site Analysis

Throughout my 13+ years of experience in design, I always aim to bring a sustainable mindset to each project, while encompassing beautiful and functional results. I truly enjoy the collaboration process in creating unique client-focused designs. My personal design style is clean-lined contemporary with a blend of organic and bohemian elements. On weekends you can find me enjoying time outside with my family and our dogs, drinking boba tea, being a foodie, organizing, color coordinating and laughing as much as I can.

Courtney Cichowicz
Associate Designer

BA in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Cruz
Certificate in Ecological Horticulture from UC Santa Cruz

I bring a diverse background and skill set to my role as Associate Designer. I grew up in Tahoe and enjoy crafting spaces that are inspired by nature. I strive to incorporate my passion for the environment and sustainability into my design work. I am passionate about architecture and design. My father and grandfather were both in the construction industry, and I have had a love for interior design since I was a little girl. I have a great love for the outdoors, and outside of work you can find me enjoying time traveling, rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking or in the garden.

Alex Young
Studio Manager

BS in Psychology + Business Administration from Southern Oregon University

I grew up in the Bay Area with an architect dad and landscape architect mom, so I’ve been around the world of design for as long as I can remember. I am excited to combine my expertise in business administration with my creative background to support Athena Interiors as the newest member of their team! When I’m not working as studio manager, I like to practice yoga, cook delicious foods, and play with my adorable Bengal cat Leo.
