How it started...
All the good you witness from me is a reflection of my family… the not so good, well… forgive me, for I am a work in progress. - SN
can you find me? ;)
Meet Sheila Noël, your designer!
Sheila grew up in Haiti where her love for art and craftsmanship began at a young age. She learned practical skills like agronomy, construction, and candle-making from her father during her teenage years, which contributed to her appreciation for applied design.
After earning her Architecture Degree from the New York Institute of Technology, Sheila worked on several projects, including building public playgrounds for impoverished communities, participating in the construction of famous building complexes in Port-au-Prince, and working on ravine erosion remediation. Sheila focuses on structural integrity and maximizing space, details, and functionality while still keeping aesthetics in mind.
Sheila is the owner of Architecty Studio LLC, where she combines her love for interior design and architecture. All of her handcrafted items, such as jewelry, furniture, and decor pieces, are made with concrete as the main medium. She has also designed commercial and residential interiors that you may have seen from time to time.
It was a hot day on December 2018, as it always is in Haiti, and I have always dreamed of creating something that would combine art, architecture, and environment... The rest is all moving parts (story to be told one day, when the time is right)
