Caitlin Brainerd

Project Manager

Caitlin, an architect based in our Chicago studio, earned her Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Tennessee before embarking on a dynamic career journey. Her formative years were spent immersed in Aspen, Colorado, where she specialized in high-end residential and hospitality projects.

Caitlin was drawn to Northworks for the range of projects that the firm takes on nationally. Since joining Northworks, she has contributed to a range of residential projects across multiple locations and always enjoys each project’s dynamics and goals. Her dedication to excellence is evident in her commitment to bringing each client’s vision to life.  Caitlin finds balance outside the office through her love for travel, hiking, and unwavering support for the Chicago Cubs and Tennessee Volunteers.


I always enjoy collaborating with our clients at Northworks, navigating the delightful exchange of ideas. It's a process rooted in active listening, where we fuse their aspirations with our expertise, crafting designs that embody both their vision and our finest practices.
