Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA)
Bridget grew up in Brookfield and attended the University of Wisconsin, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, as well as certificates in Textile Science and Business. After college, she moved to downtown Milwaukee and started working as an interior designer at a commercial architecture firm. In 2016 she started at EUA, where she started to get involved in the commercial real estate side of architecture and interior design. Through participation in the CARW NextGen program, she looks forward to learning more about the commercial real estate industry, and how she as an interior designer, can help support brokers in the community to continue to grow and develop the great city of Milwaukee.
5 Questions with Bridget
Q: Which projects are you most excited about?
A: Any project that involves historic preservation or adaptive reuse is exciting to me. I am very interested in history, so I love that Milwaukee has so many gorgeous historic buildings to offer. I’m always inspired by the potential of an old building to take on new life. However, I know how exciting a new building is, especially in a rapidly growing city like Milwaukee, and the juxtaposition of old and new is something I love about our city.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant?
A: I don’t think I can choose just one… Buckley’s, La Merenda, and Rice & Roll are top three.
Q:What made you choose Commercial Real Estate?
A: I fell into commercial real estate through interior design. I majored in Interior Design in college, and actually thought I wanted to be a residential interior designer, but my first job out of school was in commercial design, and I never looked back.
Q: What is one word that comes to mind when you think of CARW?
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be?
A: I’m going to assume dead or alive and say my grandparents. Three out of four of them passed away by the time I was 14, so I would love to be able to sit down with them as an adult and understand more about their histories and who they really were.
