get to know anita

Growing up near historic Charleston, SC, Anita developed a keen sense of design aesthetics and appreciation for thoughtful detailing that has influenced her since childhood. She studied architecture and construction management at Clemson University before moving to historic Alexandria, VA to further her education with a master’s degree. Anita is a well-traveled professional with a passion for many arts including photography, cooking and painting.

Upon completion of her master’s studies, Anita began working for Hugh Newell Jacobsen in Washington, DC where she had the distinct pleasure of managing several award-winning published projects across the world, from Aspen, CO to Paris, France. Anita eventually returned to Charleston, SC and began working on resort homes ranging from $1.5mil to $4mil with Herlong & Associates. In January 2009, with years of custom home design experience, Anita started ink Architecture, LLC. This leap into business ownership allowed Anita to exclusively design high-end custom homes in the coastal region of SC. In addition, she was able to expand services that related to the same clientele by designing boutique commercial spaces. This included neighborhood meeting houses, luxury spas and retail spaces. With a focus on detail, Anita creates custom homes to meet the needs of clients while guiding them through the entire design and construction process from programming, conceptual design, contract documents, contractor selection, interior design, interior furnishing and contract administration.
