The famed architect and visionary William L. Pereira once said of his young employee Arlen Stahlberg, “Here is a talent of color and space”.

Having worked as Director of Design in world-class architectural firms she opened her own practice in 1991 and continues to be recognized for her highly developed sensitivity to space, to color and to the tactile pleasures of natural fibers, the warmth of woods and the patterns inherent in stone. She has received awards for both commercial and residential projects.

Her commercial clients include international financial institutions, advertising agencies, law firms and universities.

Arlen’s residential projects include historical properties, cottages, new-built contemporaries,
mid-century modern homes and luxury high-rise condominiums.

Her passion for simple tactile pleasures is expressed at the potters wheel, creating collections for close friends and family.
