Marissa Yu


Principal / Interior Design Director


As Principal and Director of Interior Architecture at Page, Marissa Yu manages multi-disciplinary teams that design over a million square feet annually, both in the US and abroad. She joined Page in 2004 and remains just as enthusiastic about the firm today because of its ‘entrepreneurial’ culture, which encourages innovation of ideas and processes. Marissa cites this as a factor in the success of the Interiors studio along with the collaborative support from the Page in-house architects, engineers, strategic consultants and administrative staff.

Marissa carries this spirit of collaboration to the next level, which is mentorship. She takes great pride in providing guidance to young Page architects preparing for their licensure exams. Additionally, she encourages interest in the profession by teaching as an adjunct assistant professor at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture & Design at the University of Houston, focusing on the Practice of Interior Architecture. Marissa believes that in addition to design and technical core competencies, an education in architecture should include essential tools for success such as leadership skills and effective communication.
