KENLY LAMBIE SHANKMAN is Studio Muir’s principal and founder. Kenly has designed homes and buildings in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and has a passion for finding and improving upon a building’s unique character, incorporating her own modern detailing seamlessly while respecting the building’s history.
Studio Muir is the namesake of Kenly’s grandmother, Edla Muir, who was an outrageously talented, pioneering female architect. She had her own architectural practice from 1946-1968 and primarily designed modern homes for Stars in Brentwood, Beverly Hills and Pacific Palisades. Edla has served as an incredible inspiration throughout Kenly’s life.
ERICA GUTIERREZ joined Studio Muir in 2015. Erica has over 10 years experience including high end renovations of apartments and homes in New York and Connecticut. She received her Master of Architecture from Tulane School of Architecture in New Orleans where she also focused on historic preservation. Erica was born and raised in New York and is where she and Kenly first met and worked together. She currently holds her architectural license in NY and CO.
