Trent Kelly has joined the Santa Barbara-based architectural firm Dylan Chappell Architects, recently announced by Dylan Chappell, principal of the firm.

In his new position, Kelly brings a wide range of modern technical expertise including his ability to create photorealistic 3D renderings, which enable clients to better experience architectural designs prior to construction.

“Trent’s commitment to and appreciation for sustainable design along with his experience in project conceptualization and programming will go to good use at DCA,” Chappell said. “He’s hit the ground running and is already immersed in a couple of our residential projects.”

Before joining DCA, Kelly worked for Carrier Johnson + Culture, a San Diego-based architectural firm, as a designer for such projects as a 75-unit residential building, two boutique hotels and a master planned residential community.

He earned his master's degree in architecture from the NewSchool of Architecture + Design in 2007 after completing his bachelor of arts degree at UCSB, where he double majored in the history of art and architecture and psychology.

Additionally, he possesses a professional LEED accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
