Sara Gally, NCIDQ, EDAC

Interior Design Principal

Sara is an interior design principal in our Philadelphia studio, specialized in healthcare design and highly skilled in deep collaboration with construction and design colleagues. Through 17 years of experience, her understanding of healthcare design has extended beyond the built environment toward designing places where people can experience healthcare with trust and comfort and where staff can operate with efficiency and feel their health and well-being is top of mind. Sara’s ability to deliver complex projects within multidisciplinary team structures exemplifies her passion for designing beautiful spaces that impact people’s experience of healthcare and that improve their quality of life. Her work as a key member of the PennFIRST integrated project delivery team illustrates the impact of her ability to collaborate.

"I choose to design for healthcare because it’s very technical and constrained; and I love a challenge. It’s easy to resort to solving a problem and checking the box, but I’m passionate about not simply checking the box, but rather transcending what’s possible and creating an environment that’s there for people in a time of need."

She has spoken at several conferences including NeoCon and LEDucation. She often lectures for Drexel’s Master of Interior Architecture program as well as for architecture and furniture design undergraduates.
