At Parallel 45 Design Group, Sarah Oakley, owner and principal, specializes in creating high-quality, timeless designs. Oakley’s standout portfolio speaks for itself – Some of the high-profile spaces she’s worked in have included commercial buildings, child care facilities, public spaces, stores, and healthcare offices. Oakley has an eye for detail, and it shows in everything she creates. But for Oakley, who is also a LEED AP (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional), a good design extends beyond just visual appeal. That’s why Oakley takes extra care with her design work to ensure that they also incorporate practical and environmental principles. In 2018, Oakley was the recipient of the Ottawa Business Journal’s 2018 40 Under 40 Award.
