Navona Architecture's Vision For Downtown Cheyenne

Navona Architecture is a premier design firm that provides innovative and resilient solutions to its clients. The company was founded by Stephanie Bedinghaus in 2019 and is dedicated to creating spaces that allow communities and businesses to flourish. The name Navona Architecture was inspired by Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy, a place that has evolved over the years to meet the needs of the current generation. Stephanie believes that every building design should embody this principle of resilience and evolution.

The company's design culture is guided by the motto "Listen first, then innovate and design." This means that the firm places a high priority on understanding the underlying desires of its clients before delivering a solution that meets those needs. Navona Architecture is committed to creating beautiful, functional, and resilient architecture for generations to come.

One example of Navona Architecture's work is the Blue Stem Winehouse, a historic building that was originally built as a residence in 1911. Over the last century, the building has served many purposes, but it is now being transformed into a winehouse. The owners are excited to bring back an Art Deco vibe to the space, with gold walls, burgundy curtains, Art Deco furniture, and antique attained glass lighting. The winehouse will feature a warm and cozy fireplace, a beautiful black waterfall counter, mahogany shelving to showcase the wine selection, and a basement that will be used for fermentation.

Navona Architecture's team is made up of talented architects, designers, and engineers who have extensive experience in creating spaces that are both functional and beautiful. They have a deep understanding of the latest building technologies and materials, and they are committed to using environmentally friendly solutions whenever possible.

The firm's approach to design is rooted in collaboration and communication. They believe that the best solutions are those that are developed through a close partnership with the client. Navona Architecture takes the time to listen to the client's needs and desires, and they work closely with them to ensure that the final solution meets those needs.

Navona Architecture has quickly established itself as a leader in the design industry, and their portfolio of work is a testament to their commitment to excellence. They have worked on a wide range of projects, from historic renovations to new construction, and they have a proven track record of delivering high-quality solutions that exceed their clients' expectations.

Whether you are looking to renovate a historic building or create a new space from scratch, Navona Architecture is the company to trust. They are passionate about creating spaces that communities and businesses can thrive in, and they are committed to delivering solutions that are both innovative and resilient. With their deep understanding of the latest building technologies and materials, their commitment to environmental sustainability, and their passion for creating spaces that are both beautiful and functional, Navona Architecture is the perfect partner for any design project.

Stephanie’s love for architecture began early; at the age of eleven, she was designing
houses - floor plans and elevations. Growing up in a neighborhood with houses constantly
under construction, she loved exploring the houses before the drywall went up - walking
between studs, knowing they would soon be covered with sheathing and finishes and only a
few people would know what’s “hidden” behind all that paint.

Now, as an architect, she loves working with clients to see their vision go from ideas or
napkin sketches to structure and finishes. Her organizational and problem-solving skills, as
well as her attention to detail and drive to create the best solutions for her clients, make
designing architecture a lifelong love for her.
