//3877 announced the addition of Architectural Associate Kate Janik to the firm. A recent graduate of the Catholic University of America with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a minor in sustainability, Kate brings a fresh perspective and a technical skillset to the expanding design team.
“We have always found great value in investing in young, up-and-coming talent; it allows our team to look inward at its work and processes, pushing to embrace new concepts and ideas,” says //3877 Partner David Tracz. “We know Kate will be an awesome addition to our company as we continue to expand our presence and project portfolio.”
Kate was drawn to architecture from a young age, valuing the creativity of the profession and the ability to create spaces that positively impact people’s lives. Her previous experience with an integrated building design studio class during her senior year at Catholic University solidified her expertise in the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural aspects of a project. Kate’s background in the field has led to an adept understanding of building design and construction––throughout her higher education journey and her previous internship with CallisonRTKL, Kate also refined her skills in technologies such as Revit and Creative Cloud Suite.
“During my freshman year of college, //3877 came to my studio class and spoke about their firm. I knew from the moment they presented that they curate a genuine and desirable company culture and implement a strategic and creative approach to design,” says Kate. “I was attracted to the smaller, close-knit group at the firm as well as the scope of projects that //3877 takes on; I’m looking forward to tackling different project typologies across various industries.”
In her role at //3877, Kate will work on computer-aided design and technology, assisting project teams at a variety of stages such as design development, schematic design, and construction administration. She will assist a variety of teams across different verticals, jumping in to provide insight and support throughout the process. In addition to her design skills, Kate has a host of other talents, including solving a rubik’s cube in under a minute and watercolor painting, just to name a few.
//3877’s latest hire demonstrates the firm’s commitment to the continued development and growth of their team. Most recently, the firm announced their expansion in New York City, marking a significant milestone for the company. For more information about //3877, please visit https://www.3877.design/.
