Annie Carruthers is recognized in South Florida for distinctive luxury estates and attention to detail. A Miami native by birth, Annie received her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Miami. She studied under urban planner Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, known for completing the designs and codes for over two hundred towns including Seaside, as well as Jorge Hernandez, renouned professor and author Vincent Scully, and Thomas Spain. She spent her fourth year abroad in Florence Italy where she was inspired by the classical setting. Through her studies, Annie worked for the University of Miami Construction Department as Project Coordinator. She also worked for Lennar Homes, permitting hundreds of homes in Miami-Dade County which provided valuable experience in the permit review process. She later began her apprenticeship with Revuelta, Vega, Leon, a firm specializing in high-rise, luxury residential structures. She worked on many contemporary downtown Miami, 30 to 52 story structures including Jade, The Bath Club, Porto Vita and La Rive.
Annie founded In-Site Design Group in order to expand creatively on projects with greater artistic license. She transforms basic utilitarian programs into a composition that evokes strong emotional responses, while meeting personalized visions and the social desires of the client. Returning to Europe often, she continues to borrow and adapt classical themes in residential work. Her approach to design is to reflect traditional elements and respond to the tropical climate, without stylistic embellishment. Emphasis is placed on entertainment spaces and interiors, creating views and separate private areas for peacefulness and reflection. The enjoyment of physical sensations while moving through spaces is equally important. For this reason, she generally works from the inside out, where the program determines the overall form. The external appearance of the building is a natural result of this process.
Annie is a licensed Registered Architect, General Contractor, Interior Designer and Real Estate Broker which combines a knowledge of the local real estate market with economically feasible building solutions. Annie has over 20 years experience in the construction industry.
Annie is fluent in Spanish, Italian and French allowing her to work with international clients. Her passion and commitment to the art of building are beautifully expressed in her work.
