architectural intern

Keely Ashton

Keely received her Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Minnesota in 2023, and is now pursuing her Master’s of Architecture degree while working part-time at the studio. Keely’s passion for architecture started at a young age when she’d spend hours drawing up house and hotel floor plans, imagining how people live in and enjoy spaces. Keely’s interest in architecture and design has continued to grow since then. She’s particularly interested in urban design, walkable city planning, universal design, adaptive reuse, and sustainable living which she plans to continue exploring both in graduate school and at Shelter.

With a love for learning and using both the analytical and creative sides of her brain, Keely adds a valuable blend of creativity and practicality to our studio. Outside of work and school, Keely enjoys dancing, traveling, photography, and all things Gopher sports.
