Melika Sizar prioritizes client needs, preferences, and emotions to successfully tell each one's story through the creation of healthy and thoughtful spaces. Her human-centric design approach is borne of her early understanding of the influence that design and architecture have on wellness. Specializing in sustainability in healthcare and workplace design, she employs biophilic design principles to mitigate the effects of the built environment while delivering lasting designs that foster experiences and enduring memories. Her capstone project, which showcased the impact of natural sunlight, organic materials, and curvilinear forms on the speed of a human body's ability to heal in a healthcare setting, was published in Dezeen magazine.
A recent graduate of George Washington University, Melika now applies her ability to graphically represent concepts, ideas, and design theory through sketches, diagrams, and renders to KCCT's interiors studio. A native of Virginia and current resident of Maryland, her active engagement in the local community includes her participation in a redesign project of her former elementary school, as well as Habitat for Humanity. Her creativity extends outside of work where, in her free time, she is an avid watercolor painter and calligrapher.
