Elise Zilius

Designer + Project Manager

As Designer and Project Manager, Elise strives to create inclusive and innovative spaces that prioritize the human experience. She is a key member of our team, leading feasibility studies, working on urban design and institutional projects, and supporting our retail and affordable housing teams.

A graduate of Syracuse University, Elise is inspired by the power of design to shape everyday life, and her work at Studio Luz continues to expand her appreciation of the design profession at large. After work each day, Elise practically takes her love of design home with her. In her free time, she enjoys crafting, making, and dancing. Elise, who describes herself as a maker and designer, is always searching for her next craft project, from failed crochet pieces to designing furniture for her apartment.
