Designing the Future: Inside the Latest Projects of Lambert Design Group

Running a design firm of one may sound like a challenge, but to Michelle Lambert of Lambert Design Group, it also offers unique opportunities for both the client and designer. 

“I’m a one man show,” she says. “But you get me. You’re not going to get in touch with a business development person that passes you to a senior designer, then to a junior designer. With me, there’s one streamlined point of communication.” This creates an incredibly personalized experience for Michelle’s clients. 

As a licensed commercial designer, Michelle has learned from a variety of projects since starting Lambert Design Group.

“Every project is different, and every project needs a different team of people,” she explains. “So not being tied to an architecture or engineering firm gives me the flexibility to pull together the right team for every project.”

And those projects include spaces in the iconic 500 West 5th Street building in downtown Winston-Salem. “From financial planning, to restaurants, to standard office spaces, it’s a whole host of spaces that have been wonderful to work with.”

Michelle also worked on an award-winning middle and high school in Kernersville. Her work on that space felt especially rewarding since it was providing a supportive space for children.

In 2024, Lambert Design Group will take on several medical spaces. Those are special to Michelle since she appreciates influencing peoples’ healing journeys. 

After 11 years of business, Michelle has maintained her philosophy of letting her clients lead the way. “I try not to push my own design feelings on anybody,” she explains. “My goal is to help people figure out their design aesthetic and implement their vision for their space. It’s their office, their vision, and their dream. My job is to create that for them.” 

Watching these visions come to life is why Michelle does what she does. If you’re curious about what she can do for you, you can visit Lambert Design Group. She is licensed in the state of North Carolina and is willing to travel for projects. 

“I’m always up for learning, trying new things, and taking on new challenges” she says. “That’s the best way to keep growing.”
