Elizabeth Allen, NCIDQ

Director of Design

Seeking warmer weather and new possibilities, Elizabeth Allen migrated to South Florida from Boston and transitioned her career from commercial interiors to a focus on healthcare design shortly thereafter. Growing up in the north and graduating from Syracuse University had taken its toll on a beach girl at heart. She recently joined the Gurri Matute team and is based at our satellite office located in Deerfield Beach, FL.

Ever passionate for design, Elizabeth applies her intuitiveness and knowledge to create spaces that both satisfy her client’s needs and tell their story. She draws inspiration from her past corporate, hospitality and real life experiences. “Immersing yourself into the reasoning behind desired outcomes serves to guide your process.”

Known in the industry for her focus, drive and integrity, Elizabeth’s softer side is unveiled once you get to know her. Outside the office, she spends time at the beach, traveling, #tweeting, advocating for animals and hosting family gatherings at her home. She resides in Boca Raton with her husband, daughter and furry friends June, Johnny (Chihuahuas) and Joey (Brussels Griffon).
