Sennah L. Loftus


Associate Principal

Sennah Loftus, LEED AP BD+C, started her architecture career at VMA in 2000 as an intern draftsperson, steadily increasing her level of project responsibility over the years. 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. She has particular skill in detailing, understanding of materials and how they go together, and has also become an indispensable leader of VMA’S Interiors Studio, overseeing the interior design and finishes selections of the firm’s projects. Her design expertise ranges from comprehensive and targeted planning studies, specifically for academic institutions, to maximizing the design efficiency of renovations and new construction for all program and building types. 

Sennah’s recently-completed projects include the new Dining Hall at Millbrook School, the LEED Certified Stewart Student Center at Episcopal High School, and the Abbott Dining Hall renovation at The Lawrenceville School. She has also managed some of the firm’s highest-profile projects for clients like the University of Pennsylvania Law School and the Wharton School of Business, the Yale Club of New York City, Rutgers University, Vassar College, and Christ Church in Philadelphia.

An athlete since very early on in life, Sennah has a healthy dose of a competitiveness nature to her; she is a consistent member of the VMA softball team and is always willing to join in for a pick-up game of basketball or soccer. She also enjoys swimming laps, albeit at a much slower pace than when competing in junior high through college. Sennah enjoys travel and visiting new places, constantly looking up and around to draw inspiration from examples of the built environment around her.
