Hailey Connor, Interior Designer
Hailey completed her Master of Interior Design Degree from the University of Manitoba in 2011. Her practicum, entitled, ‘Culture is Healing: A design for Youth Suicide Prevention in Northern Manitoba’ involved research and design to develop a culturally sensitive treatment centre for First Nations youth in northern Manitoba. For this work she was awarded the 2011 ARCC / King Medal for Excellence in Architectural and Environmental Design Research.
Over the course of her career Hailey has worked in a wide variety of sectors with a primary focus on healthcare and institutional projects. Engaged in a number of projects both small and large, Hailey has participated in developing functional space programs and comprehensive space planning for highly detailed and technical interiors including assessment spaces for special needs children, office spaces for both government and private organizations, high security patient care areas in hospitals and recreation facilities.
Serving the role as the lead interior designer, Hailey’s involvement in projects often commences at the very onset of the pre-design and design process with client and user start-up meetings and project feasibility studies. Her involvement continues throughout the design process to construction.
