Sara Holmes

Vice Chair

Sara is a licensed architect, member of AIA, a LEED AP BD+C, and a PHI Certified Passive House Designer.  She was also a founding member and serves as Secretary for Connecticut Passive House.  

Sara has been with Wyeth Architects since 2009 working on numerous residential and institutional projects.  She is proud to have worked on Quinnipiac University’s Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum which houses the world’s largest collection of art and artifacts related to the Great Hunger and a residence in Stonington that is Passive House Institute (PHI)-certified and U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Gold and received numerous awards.  

While her decision to attend Skidmore College as an undergraduate may have been heavily influenced by its outstanding equestrian program, it was here she fell in love with theater, soon becoming involved in all aspects of stagecraft. Knowing she wanted to follow a career in architecture and design, Sara earned a Bachelor of Science with a self-determined major incorporating studies in technical theater, art history, and studio art.  Next, she went on to earn a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania where her studies ran the gamut from historic preservation to environmental building simulation.  Her dream house is a converted barn.
