Ginger Thompson

Project Designer

Always eager to learn more, Ginger turns investigator, searching for the components of an environment that make it flourish. From human behavior, cultural motivations and brain stimulus, to interpretations of beauty and comfort and realizing the full potential of materials, Ginger is always looking to give buildings a voice through her designs.

Her mother set the wheels in motion by encouraging Ginger to look for clues of a building’s story. Hours spent touring different structures led to discovery of the narrative in unique brickwork. Gazing at open rafters spoke to changes in light and sound. Noticing corbels and dentil trim – oh the marvel of all the layers occupying one wall. These observations were impactful and inspired Ginger to tell her own story through architecture. Recent projects include E. Claire Raley Studios for the Performing Arts at Fremont School and Mohr Hall at Sacramento City College.

“I am grateful every day for a job where I love what I do and who I work with; my family who inspires and impresses me; and really good Ramen.”
