Brad Iest


Associate Principal

“I spent my childhood summers camping up and down the West Coast and experienced the dramatic impact environments have on one’s well-being. This relationship with exterior environments is something that I believe is elemental in creating successful, healthy spaces.”

Brad has 17 years of experience as a designer of student housing and educational facilities. As one of Mahlum’s higher education studio leaders, he consistently applies best practices of design gleaned from working with clients at the forefront of pedagogical theories and residence life environments. Brad actively draws from his broad design expertise to foster a sense of community and learning for students.
