Robin Tannenbaum Architectural Designer
Robin Tannenbaum came to Kaplan Thompson Architects in 2007 with a strong interest in sustainable design, community design and historic preservation. She holds an undergraduate degree in History from Oberlin College on Ohio and a Masters of Architecture from the University of Maryland.
Robin has worked for architecture firms in Washington, DC, Maryland and Maine, developing her understanding of the design and building process in both urban and rural settings and in different climates. Project types have ranged from the design of single-family homes to the rehabilitation of a 900,000 square foot historic mill building being turned into apartments and offices. In all of her projects, Robin is known for her attention to detail and her ability to organize and communicate complex amounts of information to numerous stakeholders.
A LEED accredited professional, Robin coordinates all LEED related documentation in the office and helps educate clients about ways they can employ green strategies in their projects. She is member of the program committee of the Maine Chapter of the U.S Green Building Council, serves on several committees in her current hometown of Westbrook, ME and frequently volunteers as a design facilitator at community design workshops throughout Southern Maine.
Robin grew up in South Carolina and has been investigating the built environment around her in all her homes since – Ohio, England, Israel, Washington, DC, and most recently on Isle au Haut, ME prior to settling in the Portland area several years ago. She is currently renovating an 1880’s John Calvin Stevens house in Westbrook, ME with her husband.
