Award recognizes the industry’s top 30 designers under the age of 30

Brentwood, Tenn. – January 31, 2024 – Wold Architects and Engineers, a national leader in education, healthcare and government architecture with a local office in Brentwood, Tenn., today announced that interior designer Ashton West was named to Interior Design Magazine’s 30/30 program, an annual award recognizing the industry’s top young design professionals.

Interior Design Magazine, the global, industry-leading design publication, launched this initiative in 2022 to celebrate the work of emerging creative talent, foster new connections and accelerate professional growth. A graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, West embodies the goals of this program with her excitable energy and the innovative ideas she brings to the Wold design team.

“It is an honor to be recognized as one of the top 30 young designers by Interior Design Magazine,” said Ashton West. “The industry is ripe with incredible talent, and I’m thrilled to be included amongst such amazing young professionals that will help shape the future of design.”

West joined Wold in 2022 and quickly became an integral part of the design process for major projects across Tennessee and Minnesota, first as an intern and now as a full-time interior designer. She works closely with the team, offering expertise in interior finish selections and specifications, addressing red-lined drawings and contributing to the design of interior spaces to meet client needs while improving function and flow.

The honorees were recognized at a ceremony in late December at HASTINGS Architecture in downtown Nashville to commemorate their impactful journey thus far in their careers and connect with other emerging designers.
