Janine Lovejoy Wilford, Architect - Designing quality early educational spaced in the Bay Area


By specializing in early educational spaces, Janine combines her architectural expertise and her knowledge of child development to achieve optimal design solutions. She has designed preschools, elementary schools, playgrounds, children's libraries, and community centers as well as civic, commercial and residential projects.

Kendricks Pavilion Janine provides fun, nurturing, safe environments for children and their caregivers and recognizes the importance of integrating interior and exterior spaces.

Becoming a LEED AP (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional) demonstrates Janine's commitment to the environment. Green and sustainable design practices are integrated into the projects in a cost effective way through choice of materials, site location, and day lighting, among many other considerations.
