Emma Shiffert

LEED Green Associate

Interior Design

Sustainable Thinker

Emma crafts client-centric design solutions by examining the issues from the user's point of view from the get-go. Known for her attention to detail and insightful approach, Emma brings her clients along each phase of the project from concept, ideation, to the final design, ensuring the client's goals and priorities are met to the fullest extent.


To continue growing in her career, Emma was looking to be challenged by her peers. SMBW allows designers to wear many different hats and collaborate with clients and partners who are constantly pushing you outside of your comfort zone. Great design comes from pushing boundaries and thinking outside of the box and Emma was looking to be a part of that mentality at SMBW.

Design Engagement

Emma examines each design problem from the client’s point of view in the beginning stages of a new project. The R+D phase is crucial for a successful project flow. By having clients on board during this phase of the project, our design teams are able to identify design dilemmas, and develop solutions and tactics in partnership with the client, who can provide boots-on-the-ground insights.

Hidden Talents

Emma can solve a Rubik's cube in under two minutes.
