Your personal advisor and interpreter leads the way.



From start-ups to established businesses and all sizes between, Founder & Principal, Allyson Strowbridge, brings years of experience (too many to count with fingers and toes!), working with a wide range of industries, such as:


high tech, sporting goods, financial & legal, creative, EDUCATION, HOSPITALITY and more.  

Allyson's rather unconventional academic background in foreign language (Japanese, actually) and education (Master of Arts in Teaching) is a fitting foundation for her current practice at ctrl+shift+space.

Throughout her atypical career, Allyson's path has led to opportunities where she reinvigorated cultures and brands, managed work places as a 'consumer' of space, plus developed her passion as a 'creator' of inspiring interiors. Today, Allyson's 'secret sauce', is applied and infused with her workplace strategies and philosophies surrounding what she describes as: 

Organizational Placemaking - 

The planning, designing, constructing and furnishing of interiors with the express purpose of inspiring individuals to contribute to and embrace the well-being of their community.

Never one to shy away from a healthy dose of risk-taking, Allyson's energy and spirit for life is unabashed and contagious. She's lived, explored and studied in Japan, cliff-jumped in Jamaica; kayaked through Thailand's archipelagos, swam in the underground cenotes of Mexico, and serenaded at the top of Galileo's private observatory in Italy. 

SO what? well, here's What this means for you...
