DENVER - Jan. 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Melissa Mabe-Sabanosh, partner and director of design at Ruggles Mabe Terrell Architecture, a boutique residential and commercial design firm, was selected by ENR Mountain States magazine as one of its’ 2014 Top 20 Under 40 in the Mountain States and Plains region. The competition recognizes up-and-coming industry leaders from across the country.

Melissa’s dedication and passion for architecture and design made her standout from the 800-plus nominations judged by ENR on career experience, industry leadership, community service and other factors. Professionally, she has taken her career from intern to partner in less than 10 years, overseeing the innovative and thoughtful design of a 40,000-square-foot residence in Denver, as well as projects throughout Colorado and overseas. Her industry leadership is shown by her efforts to create a new Certificate in Classical Architecture at the University of Colorado Denver. These are just a few of Melissa’s notable accolades and accomplishments.

“Melissa really breaks the mold in the architecture industry, a primarily male-dominated field, with her passion for the environment and desire to create opportunities for the next generation of architects and designers,” said Cameron Kruger, AIA, founder and principal architect at Kruger Design-Build LLC.

Melissa’s commitment to her community is also recognized, noting her current role as a board member and treasurer of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art (ICAA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the practice and appreciation of the classical tradition in architecture. Melissa and other winners will be profiled in the February 24 issue of ENR Mountain States. For more information, visit
