New York, NY Reflecting its recent growth and presence, architecture and interior design firm Spacesmith has promoted four key team members. The newly elevated professionals–each contributing to the firm’s reputation for design excellence, expertise in project delivery, and unique focus on business and client strategic goals–include Ámbar Margarida, CID, IIDA, assoc. AIA, LEED green associate, who has been elevated to principal.
In addition to Margarida, the firm’s experienced project manager William Wong, AIA, LEED AP, known for his business sense and strategic expertise, has been elevated to the role of associate. Project manager Drew Miller, assoc. AIA, regarded for his work in the retail sector for such clients as Hermès, has also been elevated to the role of associate. A third experienced project manager noted for her work with the U.S. Department of State, Alexandra Koretski, assumes the title of associate as well.
“These practitioners represent a new generation of leadership in design and client relations, and their combined experience underscores the value Spacesmith brings to each project,” said Jane Smith, FAIA, IIDA, founding partner at the firm. “We’re pleased to have a tradition of elevating talented professionals who understand the importance of business as much as the value of design excellence. These four people are true strategic partners for our clients.”
In acknowledging the roles of the four professionals as key leaders in the firm, the promotions announced today also underscore Spacesmith’s commitment to its core values of highly crafted, client-driven solutions. The firm’s associates and principals lead projects and client accounts and within Spacesmith act as mentors for emerging professionals.
“We’re proud to recognize the important roles and challenges that Ámbar, William, Drew, and Alexandra take on with the Spacesmith team, within the larger professional community, and for our clients,” said Smith, who was elevated to the AIA College of Fellows this year. “Design is ultimately about people, and with the best and the brightest, we’re able to commit to creating more of the sensitive, meaningful projects that have become the hallmark of our practice.”
