Join us in celebrating Brent Capron, AIA, IIDA, who has been promoted as part of our firm’s Leadership Program from Associate Principal to Principal.


The Leadership Program recognizes individuals who have an extraordinarily positive impact on our firm, our teams, and our clients through innovation, culture-building, and design excellence.

Since joining our New York studio in 2017 in the role of Interior Design Director, Brent has overseen the design of several high-profile projects, including multiple global offices for Indeed, the corporate headquarters for Penguin Random House, and the relocation of Guardian Life’s headquarters to Hudson Yards. His creativity and strategic thinking have influenced the design of over 1 million square feet of interior space in Manhattan alone, and another 500,000 feet nationally.

A champion of interdisciplinary design, Brent often collaborates with project teams in healthcare, planning and strategies, and science and technology. The exposure to different project types is one way he encourages the growth of individual designers in the studio, helping them to explore and develop their own voices. He has also been intentional about cultivating a culture of increased design discourse, peer review, and self-critique.

Brent is committed to upholding sustainability and resilience standards in his designs. He was recently invited to present a case study on Viacom’s resilience efforts at the CoreNet Global conference in Boston and again at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York last fall. He looks forward to continuing to lead by example.

In addition to Brent’s promotion, we’re proud to share several other important promotions this year:
