Carmen Finegan brings over 15 years of architecture, design and project management experience to Architectural Resources. Since receiving her degree in architecture from the Architecture and Design Faculty in 2000, Carmen has been a recognized architect in the Sun Valley area, becoming a principal for Architectural Resources in 2011. A nimble and detail-oriented designer, Carmen has been involved in the design and management of a wide range of projects that vary in scope, size and challenge. These projects span from remodels and additions to new construction, and frequently involve the skillful coordination of interior furnishings, cabinetry, lighting and appliances for very high-expectation clients. Her approach to her work is respectful of efficiency and simplicity, rooted in the notion that clean design lends itself to a more satisfying and timeless result.
Carmen collaborates with Architectural Resources founder Rob McGowan on both residential and commercial ventures, in addition to helping oversee the growth of their exclusive interior design showroom. This collaborative effort allows Architectural Resources to be a “one stop shop” for clients and their projects.
Carmen resides in Sun Valley, Idaho with her husband and two children. She was born in Villavicencio, Colombia and studied architecture at the Pontifical Xaverian University in Bogota before obtaining her degree and later becoming licensed in Idaho.
