Connie Lindor & Scott Muellner

We met in architecture school, and have been obsessing about design ever since. We believe good design can inspire and improve life in both small and large ways. The more we elevate the importance of design, the better our lives (and the world) will be.

When we plan our travel, we search for places to stay that are well designed and authentic. Places that will elevate our experience beyond keeping us warm and dry. Places that have architectural intention and a story to tell. Our goal is to make these places easily available for people to experience on their own.

We created PlansMatter as a place for guests who value exceptional design to find and connect with hosts who have invested in extraordinary architecture.

PlansMatter. Love architecture.

Crystal Noonan
Operations + Marketing Director

Crystal’s appreciation for contemporary art and architecture was sparked at her Walker Art Center tenure during their Herzog & de Meuron designed expansion and renovation. Crystal loves getting the details right on design oriented projects almost as much as going to a good reggae show.

Her background in art, architecture and technology environments makes her perfect for her role at PlansMatter, where she does everything from managing the website, to researching potential properties and area-specific regulations, to coordinating the listing and booking process with hosts and guests.

She gets stuff done.
