Joanne Engelhard

Born and raised between Lima, Peru and Miami, Florida, Joanne started noticing the influence of design at a young age. The juxtaposition of the diverse architectural styles seen in Peru and the modern high-rise buildings in downtown Miami sparked her interest in architecture. She went on to study at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture and Graphic Design, where the beautiful mansions along the St. Charles St. kindled her passion for residential architecture. Looking to stay in a warm (but less humid climate!) Joanne packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles to join the Kovac Design Studio team. In her free time, you can find her at home (probably reading), at the beach (definitely reading) or checking out new restaurants, music venues and vintage shops (not reading but with a book in her purse).
