Lighting Designer I

Mia Rosensaft rejoined The Lighting Practice in 2021 after working for two prominent Philadelphia architecture firms. She graduated from Drexel University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Architecture and as a Pearson Prize Finalist for Best Architecture Thesis. Through lighting design, Mia can find synergy between her passions for architecture and fine arts by illuminating architectural features and highlighting key spatial moments within the built environment. Motivated by her interest in sustainability and human-centric design, she is a LEED Accredited Professional and is currently an NCARB Licensure Candidate. Additionally, Mia is actively involved in the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Since joining TLP, Mia’s project experience includes hospitality, higher education, commercial interiors, and healthcare. When not at work, Mia is creatively driven and is prepared to sketch or watercolor inspirations with her traveling notebook.
