Jeannette Penniman


Jeannette Penniman came to architecture from a background in environmental sustainability, and she has been working to integrate that into her professional experience since. While majoring in Environmental Studies as an undergrad, she realized that architecture was the methodology with which she wanted to address the climate crisis; she subsequently completed her masters degree at the Yale School of Architecture. After graduating she worked at KieranTimberlake Architects in Philadelphia, where she learned a tremendous amount about detailing high-performance building envelopes while working on large higher education projects. From 2019–2023 she worked at Patriquin Architects (in New Haven) on a range of project types and sizes, including affordable multifamily housing, single-family housing, small commercial, and academic projects.  She currently works with Onion Flats Architects on a wide range of larger scale housing and institutional projects. She is a registered architect, Certified Passive House Consultant, LEED AP, Connecticut native, and enthusiastic New Haven resident.
