Kara And Ahmed


The final buzzer has sounded on 2019 and, with a couple of fresh faces on our roster, we’re warmed up and ready to take on 2020. Please welcome Ahmed Constable and Kara Johnston to the Bailey Edward team in the Chicago office!

Having a hand in the design of buildings from Colorado to Dubai, Ahmed joins Bailey Edward as a licensed architect. He earned his BA in Fine Arts at Amherst College in Massachusetts, followed by a Master of Architecture from Boston Architectural College and has experience designing hospitals, offices, housing, and beyond! But an impressive portfolio isn’t the only thing Ahmed is serving up—he also played competitive volleyball for 17 years!

After seven years out east in Washington D.C., Kara is returning to her home state to join Bailey Edward as our newest designer. With a BS in Architectural Studies from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Masters in both Architecture and Historic Preservation from the University of Maryland – College Park, Kara comes to us with a wealth of experience working on Frank Lloyd Wright homes, residential design, and even volunteering her marketing talents with the Association for Preservation Technology’s DC chapter! When she’s not busy at the office, Kara loves games, whether on a board or a basketball court.
