Cherri has been in love with Architecture for as long as she can remember. The discovery for her was in elementary school when an Architect visited her class and gave a slideshow presentation of buildings he visited during his Paris vacation. What he did was more than just give a slideshow to a group of 10 year olds, he introduced her to the world of design and ignited a passion. That experience had a profound and lasting impact and set her on a determined course to be an Architect.
Cherri lived in Arizona at the time, but later returned to her birthplace of Louisiana for high school and college where she studied Architecture and Design at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA. After practicing Architecture for several years, she found her way to Birmingham, Alabama and knew she had found her permanent home.
Once settled, she formed the design firm of Studio C Architecture & Interiors and set up her Studio in the historic Magic City Casket Building in the ‘Design District’ of Southside, Birmingham, where she has been for over seven years. Cherri founded Studio C with three simple philosophies: take good care of your clients, create timeless and meaningful designs, and enjoy what you do. Cherri pays close attention to detail and listens intently to client’s dreams and desires and works to translate those into romantic and enduring spaces that her clients never want to leave.
The primary focus of Studio C’s work is custom residential and private retreat homes along with the occasional boutique commercial project for clients that require a more personalized design approach.
That first encounter with Architecture left a strong imprint that is still evident in her design today. Whether the language of the Architecture is traditional or modern, crafting beautiful spaces for those who occupy and inspire the design is paramount to Cherri. With projects throughout the region, Cherri’s work has been published in Birmingham Home & Garden, Birmingham Magazine, B-Metro, Southern Living and No’Ala Magazine.
