Sennah L. Loftus


Partner & Director of Interiors

Sennah Loftus, AIA, IIDA, LEED AP BD+C, has been with VMA since 2000 and became a Partner in January 2024. She holds a Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University School of Architecture and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics from Bryn Mawr College, where she frequently returns as a studio juror. In addition to her overall leadership as Partner, Sennah’s underlying interest in detail and materials has led to her executive oversight of VMA’s interior design studio.

Sennah is an innovator, always looking for “both/and” solutions, and she particularly excels at creating advanced teaching spaces for colleges, universities, and independent schools. Her experience includes the first fully immersive classrooms at Rutgers University as well as award-winning classrooms at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School that sensitively balanced large LED arrays with ornate historic plasterwork. She has shared her approach with others through presentations for NeoCon, APPA, and other national organizations.

An athlete since very early on in life, Sennah has a healthy dose of a competitiveness in her nature. She is the star second baseman for the VMA softball team and is always willing to join in for a pick-up game of basketball. She swam for both her high school and her college and still enjoys swimming laps. Sennah and her family are inveterate travelers and consistently visit new places, drawing inspiration from examples of the built environment.
