Lisa DeStefano, owner and principal of DeStefano Architects, was born and bred in Portsmouth. So when she decided to give free rein to her entrepreneurial spirit and open up her own design firm - just a handful of years after graduation - the Port City was an easy choice.
For the 41-year-old DeStefano - who with her 10-person staff will be celebrating her 10th anniversary in business next May - creating 'people spaces' is her passion, and bringing those spaces from blueprint to bricks for people just as passionate about good design as she is proves to her home is where the heart is.
