Jon McCandlish's exploratory and collaborative design process leads to buildings that elevate the people, places, and institutions they serve.
Jon came to KieranTimberlake in 2010 after several years as an architect in New York. His experience with projects that balance ambitious design aspirations with complex program, site, and environmental systems has been especially useful in his current role as the Associate-in-Charge on 181 Mercer, a new 735,000-square-foot multi-use building for New York University in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.
Prior to his time on the NYU design team, Jon served as the Project Architect for Henley Hall, the future headquarters for the Institute for Energy Efficiency at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and for Pound Ridge House, a private residence in Upstate New York whose sustainable and conscientious approach helped celebrate and preserve an ecologically delicate site. He has also worked on a number of other projects including the Embassy of the United States in London, and the Michener Art Museum's Edgar N. Putman Pavilion in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Jon's design work has appeared in publications such as Architectural Record, Architect, Interior Design, and Wallpaper* magazines, as well as in the real estate and lifestyle sections of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Financial Times.
