Manuela has been a key player at R|5 Design Agency over the past four and a half years, demonstrating exceptional leadership and design skills during her tenure.
Manuela has a Master of Architecture from Southern Illinois University Carbondale and a Bachelors of Architecture from Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana. During her time with R|5 Design Agency, she has worked on and led many projects including The Four Seasons Hotel first and eighth floor lobbies, Cinder House Restaurant, Wipro, Edera, and many more.
Manuela has shown outstanding leadership during her time with our company. Last year, she organized R|5 Design Agency’s First Annual Pizzazz A Mask Competition. For this competition, designers from all around the St. Louis area designed masks, and proceeds went to Mercy Kids Children’s Hospital. She was also recently a design mentor for ULI’s Real Estate Diversity Initiative (REDI), in which minorities and women were invited to learn from real estate and design professionals about the best practices in real estate.
Manuela also enjoys spending time with her dogs and bringing them to our dog-friendly office as well. We are proud to have Manuela on our team, and we are excited to see her leadership in action as the new Design Manager. Congratulations, Manuela Macia!
