Celebrating 30 Years!

Last week we had the privilege of celebrating our 30 years in business with all of the people that have afforded us the opportunity to be of service to them.  We shared the moment atop the Hotel Monaco with all of our great clients, friends and consultants. What started as a small one man operation back in 1984 with Jerry Roller at the helm, has transformed into a architectural force to be reckoned with, boasting 36 employees today. The projects have gotten better and better, the people sharper and sharper, and overall, it's just a great place to work! See more great images here from Aux Collective.

Educational Video about a Career in Architecture Starring JKR Architects!

Izzo Here: A few months ago, Tiffany (formerly of JKR, but still a close ally to the office) and I embarked on some uncharted territory.  We were approached by an awesome organization called GreenTreks to star in short film about careers in STEM or science, technology, engineering and Mathematics. This was the result.  Hopefully this will inspire you or someone you know to become an architect! Grab some popcorn!

Sam Kim Becomes our Latest Registered Architect!

Sam Kim is our latest team member to pass her final architecture exam and become a registered architect. It's no easy feat.  In addition to playing a major role in every aspect of our office culture, she has been quietly knocking down each test with regularity.  Usually you hear of everyone complaining about how hard the tests are, or how unfair they are, or how much they have been studying for them and consuming their lives, but Sam always kept her head and plugged away at them with her positive attitude.  We now have an impressive THIRTEEN registered architects in our talented office! Way to go Sam!
