10 Questions with Kelly Capp

Kelly Capp, Associate IIDA, AECOM

What is your favorite iconic chair?

It is somewhat cliché but I love the Eames lounge chair. It is on the top of my wish list; I hope to own it in a couple of years.

What is your favorite California destination?
You can’t beat wine country. I visit Paso Robles often to get away for the weekend to enjoy some great food and wine. We luckily have great friends who live there.

What is your favorite color?
It has been green for as long as I can remember but there is something about yellow these days. I love bright and cheery colors, particularly in the summer.

What is your go-to outfit?
For the weekend it is jeans and a t-shirt. I try to dress it up a bit for work and stick to skirts, tops and dresses for meetings. It is fun to add colorful jewelry for work; I don’t want my appearance to come across as too serious or conservative.

Where would we find you on the weekend?
In Santa Monica, eating out or visiting the Farmer’s Market.

Gold or Silver?
The jewelry I have inherited over the years from my mother is all white gold so I try to stick to that.

Beer or Wine?
Um, both……depends on what is for dinner

Beach or Mountains?
I live near the beach and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Luckily we have mountains nearby as well so I am definitely spoiled.

Online or Print Magazines?
Online for sure. I can easily save the images I like to use as reference for future projects, the print magazines just tend to pile up on my desk unread.

Open or Private Offices?
Open! We encourage our clients to move to a more open footprint in relation to their office build outs. It can sometimes be a struggle but that type of environment has many benefits related to communication, natural light, etc.
