Our newest hire, Richard Sanchez, joins the team with design experience in education, residential, life science and retail projects.
At Platt/Whitelaw, he’s looking forward to working on more education projects so he can play a part in improving the student experience.
“I was interested in joining Platt/Whitelaw because of its successful history with educational projects, the variety of project types and because I heard this is a firm with an excellent working environment.”
When he’s not busy designing at work, this NewSchool of Architecture & Design and SDSU graduate plays drums in a rock band and enjoys being a travel blogger and photographer. His favorite place to visit so far? Tokyo, Japan, he says.
Richard’s travels segue well into his chosen profession.
“My favorite thing about architecture has to be the interaction between the space and the user,” he said. “It can be the simplest thing, like putting up a letter sign that says, “I Love Amsterdam,” but those letters will create interaction that didn’t exist before. I love seeing how my design can bring people together to interact with one another.”
We love our diverse, talented, adventurous staff, and we’re happy to have Richard join the Platt/Whitelaw Architects family.
