Welcome to Wheelhouse.

It is our mission to make a difference through Interior Architecture and Design. In our experience and that of our clients, these aspects of design unite to shape spaces. By intentionally crafting the spaces in which we work, we facilitate creativity and support the relationships that occur within them, regardless of the scope of work.

We believe collaboration is a key factor in successful design, whether reconfiguring spaces or outfitting existing ones with new furnishings. In any and all cases, we encourage our clients to be integrated in the process. The outcome awards a unified translation from conception to reality.

Our intuition is pervasive, our communications positive and direct. We aim to streamline our iterative design process such that the experience for our clients occurs as open and straightforward, as they are key players in the game.

Our hands-on approach starts at the first meeting and remains constant through the design and installation process, down to the last detail. Whether new construction or a kitchen remodel, full furnishings or a light refresh, cohesion runs deep and is unique for every client, in every project. We aim to translate our clients’ wishes into a comfortable reality that expresses their unique priorities and individuality.

We love design. We are passionate about reshaping spaces. What drives us is the opportunity to make a difference… one space at a time.

Let’s get started.

Jen Murrill

Born and raised in Austin, educated in Architecture at the University of Texas, and professionally trained in both Architecture and Interior Design in central Virginia and across my vast home State, I am experienced with honoring pristine natural surroundings and adapting to an ever-shifting built environment. International travel over the last 20 years has shaped my influences and design acumen as well. My ability to be malleable runs deep, as does my practiced sense to seek the potential for beauty in all spaces.

For me, the process of design is one of listening, interpretation, putting into practice years of experience to foster the right solution, time and again, never discovering the same answer twice. That’s the beauty of it… finding synergy between structure, functionality, aesthetic, and crafted detail, for each individual client.

I am a mama, a creator, a space shifter. I also love a good karaoke night with friends… and camping. All of these attributes bring me joy and are the gifts I get to offer back to the world, full circle.

My professional career has truly been a journey and that has given me a unique perspective in the design world. I received my Bachelor of Science in Radio-Television-Film from UT Austin and swiftly moved to Los Angeles to work in the film and television industry. I realized my passion lies elsewhere and moved to London to pursue a career in Interior Design.

I received my Master of Arts in Architectural Interior Design from the prestigious Inchbald School of Design in London where I accepted the Directing Principal’s Award of Honor for Architectural Interior Design. This distinguished award is presented to the top student of the year. While studying in London, I had the opportunity to extensively travel through Western, Central, and Eastern Europe as well as Scandinavia and North Africa where I found inspiration in diverse design styles.

I love the process of taking a design concept, infusing it into every detail, and turning it into a tangible space. Hence, I am always seeking new inspiration and knowledge in unlikely places, people, and things. Design for me is about understanding both the world and people. Connecting with clients and creating a space perfectly tailored for them is the most rewarding aspect of my profession.
