We’re proud to share that Kristin Ledet was recognized at the IIDA’s Houston Leaders Breakfast as their Award of Excellence Honoree.

The IIDA Leaders Breakfast is an annual international event series hosted by eight local IIDA chapters. These events highlight the people who are shaping the future of design and every year, they feature and renowned keynote speaker and recognize one local honoree.

As Houston Office Practice Leader, Kristin leads with enthusiasm, poise, and a futuristic approach to how we can better enrich our lives through design. She looks at the full picture when designing a space. With a lot of experience in healthcare, she knows families might be staying at hospitals for long lengths of time—which is why she looks to create comfortable spaces that give a sense of home and joy.


  • What I love most about IIDA is the connectivity to other designers at other firms and industry partners. We can all learn and support each other as we grow in our careers and share best practices together.”

    Kristin Ledet Houston Office Practice Leader

As a Texas woman, she loves to give out-of-towners a true Houston experience whether that’s visiting the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, going to some of the city’s great parks like Hermann Park or Levy Park, walking through the Texas Medical Center, or immersing them with true Texas cuisine, either BBQ or TexMex. It’s the variety and choices of activities, restaurants, and places to explore she loves about Houston.

Kristin and her husband Blake reside in Sugar Land, a suburb outside of Houston with their 9-year-old daughter, Corynne. As a family, they love to hit some rounds of golf, cheer on Corynne and her swim team, the Sugar Creek Gators, have a game night or most recently, watch the best kid’s movies from the 80s.

When it’s not family time, Kristin loves to intertwine her professional life with golf—which means either hitting the course with her A/E industry friends or networking. Or as a de-stressor, she’ll immerse herself in a puzzle, but only if it’s over 1,000 pieces.
