Maura Trumble, AIA


Maura’s outlook on architecture and design is steeped in passion – for the design process, for the communities and landscapes in which she works, and for fostering connections between people and place. Since joining CCY in 2012, she has broadly contributed to the progressive direction of the firm through her leadership in both design and culture. In recognition of her voice in furthering the core values of the firm, she was promoted to the firm’s leadership in 2017. As a critical member of the recruiting and sustainability initiatives in the office, she continues to advance equity in design and high-performance practices across project types. In 2023, she was invited to join the ownership of the firm, becoming the first female owner.

Inspired by the incredible sites she has had the opportunity to affect throughout the American West, Maura’s work ranges from community masterplans to hospitality and resort facilities, mixed-use developments, and custom residences. Recent and ongoing work includes boutique hospitality projects in Telluride, Los Angeles, and the Coachella Valley, numerous private residences, and affordable housing for the Town of Telluride. A throughline of her career has been community engagement, with many of her projects involving extensive public processes and consensus building.

Maura is a former board member of the local USGBC chapter and current member of the Urban Land Institute’s Travel Experience and Trends Council, an invitation-only council of 45 nationally recognized members from across the United States.

A lifelong advocate of the arts, Maura is a supporter of numerous local non-profits and community oriented events, volunteering her time and professional knowledge. Recent speaking engagements include design events hosted by Telluride Arts, the Aspen Art Museum, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, and Denver Design Week. Her work has also been featured on the Telluride Art's + Architecture Home Tour. In 2019 Maura was profiled in Aspen Magazine’s “New Generation of Design”, spotlighting prominent young designers in Aspen. She was also recently invited to participate in a “Designing Women” panel at the Urban Land Institute’s national meeting and moderate “Getting Outside - Nature Based Hospitality” at the ILC INDIE Confab in Denver.
