Trinity White lives and works in East Austin. Her focus is on helping individuals and families through the process of dreaming, designing and finally creating houses and additions that are affordable, sustainable and inspiring. While she has experience working on high-end residential and commercial projects, her focus is on smaller scale homes and remodels with an emphasis on affordability and sustainable design.
As a long time student of sustainable design, she finds that making beautiful and environmentally sustainable projects doesn’t require exotic or expensive components, but can be accomplished simply by paying rigorous attention to environmentally sound building principles at every stage of the design process. Aesthetically, her designs are not driven by a precommitment to one particular style; rather, she believes in designs that work well in their local surroundings, speak directly to the client’s own tastes, and have a cohesion wherein the individual gestures add up to a clear and beautiful overall statement. She prefers a collaborative approach to her clients’ projects, in which their inspirations and fantasies are teased into a cohesive design that is practical and visually compelling.
Trinity White is actively involved in her community, having served for 5 years as Vice Chair of the Chestnut Neighborhood Plan and Contact Team. She currently represents District 1 on the City of Austin Planning Commission.
Trinity is a LEED Accredited Architect, Licensed in the state of Texas, and has rated a 5-star project with Austin Energy Green Building.
