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. Working at Station 19 Architects since 1999, 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 since 1988 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 in 1993 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.

 

Mandy McCulley, Architect, ALA, NCARB

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.

 

Dan Torgerson, Architect, ALA, NCARB

I grew up in Andover, MN and I currently live in Ramsey, MN. I have a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Master of Architecture from the University of Minnesota. My favorite part of working at Station 19 Architects is working on all aspects of the projects from conception to construction completion. I like the workspaces in the repurposed fire station as well. In my free time, when I'm not chasing my three children and entertaining them, I like convincing my wife to attend professional baseball or football events, doing projects around my home or fishing...although currently my outdoor activities are bike rides or walks.

 

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!

 

Darbie Winrick, Designer

I graduated from Kansas State University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design and joined Station 19 Architecture right after. My favorite part of the job is working with great clients and coworkers to help create spaces that have a positive impact on the people’s lives. In my free time I enjoy listening to and creating music, playing classic video games, exploring unique shops and restaurants, and traveling. Next time I have the opportunity to travel I would like to visit Scotland to enjoy the landscape, castles, museums, and culture.

 

Mitch Bezier, Intern Architect

I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a minor in Management. I am currently working on my Masters in Architecture from the University of Minnesota. My favorite part about working at Station 19 is the ability to collaboratively work on a wide range of projects. When I am not at work you can find me enjoying the outdoors. I love to camp, bike and play many recreational sports. If I could go anywhere, it would be backpacking in New Zealand.

 

Kira Savage, Office Manager

I studied Sport Management at the University of South Carolina for 2.5 years before finishing my degree at the University of Minnesota. By far, the best thing about working at Station 19 is my coworkers. I get to work in an energetic office with really talented professionals. And I get to add to the energy by helping out in any way I can. When I’m not in the office you can find me exploring the Twin Cities’ local coffee shop culture with my husband, working on my photography skills, or in my room sewing a new outfit. While I love city life, my current dream is to travel to Banff, Canada and be immersed in creation.
