MACKENZIE MERTES

Designer

Mackenzie enthusiastically applies her background in design strategy to the variety of projects she works on as a MCA Designer. She strives to ensure that her interior designs not only fit the aesthetic for each client, but creatively build on structural elements and maximize functionality.

In her role as Designer, Mackenzie works collaboratively with Project Leads to create beautiful interiors for multifamily amenity spaces, student housing, and model homes. She brings her eye for detail, use of visualization tools, and creative problem solving to MCA’s proven approach and process. Appreciative of MCA’s latest technology, clear communication and nimbleness, she loves to see projects move efficiently from the conceptual stage to fruition with installation.

Mackenzie received a Bachelor of Science in Interior Architecture with a minor in Design Strategy from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI.

Out of the office she enjoys creating art, traveling, skiing, and exploring all that Chicago has to offer especially along the Lakefront path on a sunny day.
