Welcome to the Team

We had three new team members join the Integrated Architecture team!


Anna Kindt, RA, LEED AP BD+C, NCARB, joins our team as a Project Manager|Architect. A passion for art and science brought her to architecture, which she finds to be an exciting and engaging mix of both. She enjoys the daily variety and challenges of working with clients to bring their vision to life. Anna has engaged with projects from start to finish, from listening to client and stakeholder needs in early meetings to working with the client to distill their vision and present design options to working on construction documents and construction problem-solving. She is passionate about historic preservation and sustainability, where they intersect and how relevant concepts can be incorporated into every project.​

Outside of the office, Anna enjoys gardening, kayaking, sailing, and hiking in the summer, skiing or snowshoeing in the winter, and generally being crafty all year round. She also enjoys cooking and baking new recipes, as well as exploring local antique shops and food markets.


Grant Yearling, graduated from Grand Valley State University in the summer of 2019 and received his BBA in Accounting. His previous accounting experience in the insurance industry has given him a great knowledge base and skills to apply and adapt to the architecture industry. Grant lives in Allendale with his wife, Abbey, and their three cats, Minnie, Olive, and Pixy. Abbey and Grant love exploring Grand Rapids and the surrounding areas; they are always on the lookout for a new antique shop to wander around and explore. In his spare time, Grant likes to build Lego, play video games, or find a project to work on outside.


Tommy Young's, architectural journey started with a fascination with cultures and the communities created around them. He attended Grand Valley State University and received a BA in Liberal Studies focused on Cultural Adaptation. His theoretical studies of human nature taught him about the impacts and influences that change can have on people. Soon after graduating, he moved to Chicago, where he was able to identify the similarities between his studies in culture and the built environment. Excited about his newly discovered passion for architecture, Tommy moved to San Diego. There, he attended the New School of Architecture and Design and received a Master of Architecture degree concentrated in Neuroscience for Architecture. This allowed him to apply his theoretical research to the field of architecture through evidence-based research centered around how humans experience architectural spaces. Tommy’s non-traditional pathway to architecture enables him to apply his research to his work in a way that promotes a healthy bond between sensory experiences and the built environment.

Outside of the office, Tommy spends his time deep-diving into a wide gamut of hobbies. He has a passion for cooking, exploring the outdoors, traveling to new cities, and staying active through hiking, bouldering, skateboarding, and snowboarding.
