Honorine Umukesha, Associate Architect

Honorine is an Architectural Designer at Neighboring Concepts. She graduated from Fitchburg State University in Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Technology. Honorine grew up in Africa (Rwanda) before moving to the United States to pursue higher education. After graduation, she moved to Charlotte to start her career at Neighboring Concepts.

Through her years of education and given her cultural background, Honorine has developed an appreciation for improving communities through environmentally sustainable and affordable designs.
She believes that thoughtful designs often emerge through the collaborative process of listening, learning, and engaging with communities we serve. Her love for problem solving, coupled with her passion for art and design makes architecture the best of both worlds.

If I weren’t an architectural designer I’d be…
