Rachel Lacerte NCARB

Rachel earned a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado Boulder where she studied architecture, design and urban planning. She is the second graduate to join our team from CU’s rigorous architectural design program, and she brings three years of residential and commercial design experience to HighCraft.

As an interior designer, Rachel has the uncanny ability to see all the small details that go into making a big-picture dream a reality. Her architectural background comes into play when creating spaces in 3-dimension, which allows her to offer the best, most thoughtful design solutions for her clients. She often provides computer-aided drafting and drawing support for HighCraft’s Architectural Design Team, including the production of striking and realisitc 3D renderings to help clients visualize their project, as well as detailed construction documents to satisfy permitting requirements and to guide the building process.

“The client experience is more personal at HighCraft. The projects we work on are close to our client’s hearts and have a big impact on their lives. That’s exciting to me, and it makes me passionate to do a good job because at the end of the day, that is what really matters.” – Rachel

LIKES: Yoga, traveling the world, skiing and snowboarding, learning new things, taking naps, and small acts of kindness.

DISLIKES: Traffic jams, bullies, being late to things, and poorly designed floor plans with wasted space.

More than meets the eye: After growing up in Fort Collins and attending college in Boulder, Rachel traveled first to New Zealand where she backpacked her way through the country, and then to the Dominican Republic where she taught English, learned Spanish and earned her Open Water Diver scuba certification.

Rachel is knowledgeable and personable, and was extremely patient with my selection process for materials. She has a delightful personality, and I would welcome the opportunity to work with her again. – Ginger A.
