Lisa Kriedeman

Architect and Project Manager

Lisa Kriedeman has worked at Island Architects since 1998 as a project manager. She has worked in the field of architecture since 1993 and became a registered architect in 2008. After graduating from Long Beach State, California with a degree in architectural and interior design, and a minor in marketing, Lisa began work at Batter Kay; a Del Mar based residential firm.

Lisa later worked under the direction of CW Kim Architects, a commercial firm in downtown San Diego, where she gained experience in high rise, medical and hospitality building types as well as master planning. While at CW Kim Architects, Lisa gained experience in value engineering, project scheduling and the planning and orchestration of large-scale projects, while implementing the computer and AutoCAD standards for the firm.

Having decided that custom residential architecture was her passion; Lisa joined Island Architects, where she has successfully managed several projects within the Coastal Zone. She is a seasoned project manager and a successful negotiator when it comes to the discretionary process for coastally sensitive properties. Lisa has a proven track record when presenting to design review boards, and advocates for her projects during the various phases of permitting.

A native San Diegan, Lisa’s greatest passion is world travel. She has traveled throughout Europe, Morocco, and China, as well as the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon. These experiences have proven invaluable to her eye for various genres in architecture and for her understanding of people from all walks of life.
