Cecilia Hanover is an architect, a mother, a designer, a dog-mom, a yogi, a hiker, and a baker.
She grew up in Northern Mexico surrounded by stunning natural beauty. While traveling with friends and family –especially inside her country– she developed a love for Pre-Hispanic, Colonial, and later, contemporary Mexican art and architecture. Through strong family and friendship bonds, she learned the enriching value of community and how Architecture and Design contribute to this value perfectly. She majored in Architecture at the Autonomous University of Tamaulipas so that she could focus on architectural and commercial interior design and improving the life experience of her clients through aesthetics.
For over 12 years Cecilia was an Architectural Designer at Dash Design in New York City. She was responsible for architectural design direction, design development, and project management for hotels, restaurants, retail locations, residential buildings, co-working spaces, and senior living communities. Her clients included The Draftsman (an Autograph Collection hotel), Le Meridien Dania Beach, Hotel Commonwealth, Heartis Yardley and Buckhead, Renaissance Hotel (various locations), Godiva retail stores in Asia and Europe, The Original restaurant, and multiple Urban Farmer restaurant locations.
Cecilia is LEED certified and an NCIDQ candidate for 2021.
