Nicole Thompson, President, ALA, NCARB

I graduated from University of Wisconsin with a Bachelors Degree in Interior Design, from there I moved on to the University of Maryland to earn a Masters in Architecture. These two majors have given me the blessing to enjoy this job. In my 15+ years of working at Station 19 Architects, my favorite aspect is serving our clients in creating a facility that best meets their vision and mission. I really enjoy listening to their unique needs and getting to know them, because no two projects are the same! Things I like to do for fun are hanging with my fam, taking photos, and being my kids’ number one fan, cheering them on in their sport activities. Finally, if I could travel anywhere in the world, I would love to go back to Paris, France, to sketch and drink café au lait.

 

Ann Kuntz, Principal, Associate ALA

I was an Interior Design student for two years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; from there I attended the University of Minnesota for five years and received my Bachelors of Architecture degree. I have been working at Station 19 Architects for the last 26+ years and have learned a lot of things along the way. I would say that my favorite aspect of my job is being able to bring order to the chaos and figuring out how we can improve things. When I am not working, I love reading and cooking, watching movies, boating my husband and daughter, antiquing with my sister, and going for walks with my husband! If I could go anywhere in the world, I would want to go to Europe, specifically France, Italy, and Greece to see the beginnings of architecture and taste the great food!

 

Tom Peterson, Principal, ALA, NCARB

After studying Landscape Architecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I continued my education at the University of Minnesota with an undergrad and graduate degree in Architecture. I landed at Station 19 Architects 22 years ago and I’m still going strong! I love working with people and discovering how we create a good solution together to any situation. The call to serve the church, with work that can stand the test of time (and eternity) is truly a blessing! Beyond work, my hobbies include, walking around in the woods and city, and going swimming. I love to tinker with stuff which helps keep my 1920’s Bungalow home in shape! Out of anywhere in the world, I would love to return to England with my wife and son to visit gardens, museums, and restaurants.

 

Cristina Earley, Interior Designer, CID

I attended Maryville University in St Louis and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design. I had the privilege of being a part of Station 19 from 2007-2009 and was excited to rejoin this creative team in 2015. I love being able to help our clients find creative solutions and design spaces that will enhance their ministry. There is so much variety in how to accomplish this and in the work itself, which makes each day a new and interesting puzzle. For fun I enjoy cooking, watching movies, taking pictures and painting, and playing outside with my family. If I could travel anywhere I would visit Egypt to explore ancient structures and art, sample interesting foods, and ride a camel in the desert.

 

Dan Torgerson, Architectural Designer

Dan grew up in Andover, MN and currently lives in Ramsey, MN. He has a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Master of Architecture from the University of Minnesota. His favorite part of working at Station 19 Architects is working on all aspects of the projects from conception to construction completion. He likes the workspaces in the repurposed fire station as well. In his free time when he is not chasing his three children and entertaining them he likes convincing his wife to attend professional baseball or football events, doing projects around his home or fishing. Although currently his outdoor activities are usually bike rides or walks.

 

Dawn Wiley, Office Manager

My studies in architecture have always centered on how people use space. I believe buildings should be a reflection of our most earnest goals and include our most beloved belongings. I received a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Minnesota and studied interior design at Century College earning a Certificate of Kitchen and Bath Design. At Station 19 I support the staff, so together with our clients we can create spaces to support more people in their important work. Everyday I get to work with creative people finding new solutions to puzzle du jour! After hours, I love to read spy novels and walk with my dog and husband. If I were traveling, I’d want to explore the country homes and maybe a castle or two in Ireland, and find a thatched roof cottage by the sea.

 

Kelly Murphy, Architectural Designer, Associate ALA

I went to the University of Minnesota and received my Bachelor of Science in Architecture, followed by a Master of Architecture. I began my time at Station 19 in 2014 and have been able to enjoy watching a project grow and evolve from the beginning to completion. This is one of my favorite parts to working here, along with the fact that no two days are the same, I am doing different tasks, working on different projects, and getting to experience a variety of things. I cannot believe I get to draw and use my creativity for a living! Beyond work, I love doing DIY projects and anything that is hands on. I enjoy trying new recipes and restaurants, and lastly I enjoy golfing! If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go to New Zealand!

 

Mandy McCulley, Architectural Designer

I earned my Bachelor's of Architecture at Iowa State University in 2010 and joined Station 19 Architecture in 2015. My favorite part of the job is the opportunity to build new and lasting relationships with clients and co-workers and to see ministries flourish in spaces we work together to create. Outside of the office I enjoy knitting, trying to cook everything from scratch, and exploring new places and restaurants. My dream vacation would either be to travel through France, Germany, and Eastern Europe visiting cathedrals and art museums or experiencing a completely different culture through a tour of China or maybe Thailand.

 

Mitch Bezier, Student Intern

Mitch will be a Junior at the University of Minnesota in the Architecture Bachelor of Science program. His favorite part about working at Station 19 is the ability to collaboratively work on a wide range of projects. When he is not at work you can find him enjoying the outdoors. He loves to camp, bike and play many recreational sports. If he could go anywhere it would be backpacking in New Zealand.
