Arrivederci 513 342 acquilano


A letter from our founders

We are pleased to share the letter below from our Founding Principals, Donna Acquilano and Owen Leslie, regarding their lives, careers, and emeritus status with the firm. In thanks to them, Acquilano Inc. is celebrating 37 years of design as a women-owned business focusing on commercial interiors. Donna and Owen have and will continue to be an integral part of our studio family. We are grateful for the leadership, mentorship, and opportunity to carry their legacy forward.

“After over 40 years in the profession, we are returning to our roots in Crested Butte where we met in 1977. We have enjoyed so many great relationships, clients and coworkers turned friends, and it’s hard to express how meaningful this amazing career in Design and Architecture has been! We have worked through both recessions and booms, always mindful of what could be right around the corner. Denver has been our hub and our love through these years. Contributing to its evolution and watching it become the vibrant city it is today has been an exciting journey. We have so many great memories!

We are thankful to all the people who believed in us and gave us opportunities in the depths of down economies (thinking about the late 80’s and early 2000s) as well as the good times. It’s been our honor to shape workplaces through the decades and create positive impacts on people’s daily lives. We think the design profession is the best profession in the world!

It’s now time for us to enjoy more time with our growing family, to travel, to play more music and to ski powder! We are leaving Acquilano in such fine and capable hands, which is perhaps the achievement that we are most proud of!


Donna & Owen”
