By encouraging an exploratory and highly collaborative design process, Jon McCandlish aspires to create environments that elevate the people, places, and institutions they serve.
Jon came to KieranTimberlake in 2010 after several years as an architect in New York City. He is experienced with projects that balance superlative design aspirations with complex programmatic, systematic, and site requirements, a skillset that is brought into focus by his current work on the Coles Site Redevelopment at New York University.
Previously, Jon served as Project Architect for Henley Hall, a new headquarters for the Institute for Energy Efficiency at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was also Project Architect for Pound Ridge House, a private residence in New York State that combines a high level of sustainability with a design inspired by a keen appreciation of nature. Additional projects include the new US Embassy in London, and the Edgar N. Putman Pavilion at Michener Art Museum in Pennsylvania.
Jon has served as a guest critic and presenter at the University of Edinburgh, Parsons New School for Design, and the University of Pennsylvania, among others. His work has appeared in several publications, including Architectural Record, Architect, Interior Design, and Wallpaper.
