“Design can be found anywhere; good design is harder to find. When timelessness, appearance, functionality, and character all successfully come together, good design can be achieved.”

Angelica Hoelzli is an Interior Designer for ForrestPerkins’ Washington D.C. office. Angelica’s passion for the built environment stems from her love for art. She recognizes that it can evoke emotion and opinions, carrying a lot of meaning and value. Art can be found anywhere, no matter the culture, social class or time in history. She sees interior design as a form of art, where it’s important to be knowledgeable of these same factors to positively influence communities.

Angelica has gained experience in various project types, including hospitality, high-end residential, and senior living. She works closely with the senior project staff to bring projects from concept to reality including, programming, space planning, design development, construction documentation, FF&E specifications, and construction administration.

Originally from Long Island, New York, growing up outside of one of the biggest cities in the world had a large influence on her love for architecture. Angelica graduated with an Interior Design degree from Virginia Tech’s honors college in 2021. She also studied art and design at the Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy in the Summer of 2019. One of her strengths is being able to envision a 3-dimensional space and execute drawings and renderings of it to help others better understand the vision.
