Studio RED Architects Announces Promotion of Alex Nguyen to Senior Associate
Today we are highlighting one of our exciting promotions at Studio RED, Alex Nguyen is promoted to Senior Associate and IT Director. As a graduate of the Masters Program in Architecture at Ohio State University, Alex has been active in the industry for 15 years, and a part of the Studio RED family since 2009.
Here’s a closer look at Alex and his Studio RED experiences:
Joining Studio RED: Alex’s first professional experience with Studio RED came from the outside looking in. Working in partnership on a project, he was fascinated by the Studio RED approach that valued focusing on the client. “After I worked on a project with a member at Studio RED, I was intrigued by their different take on architecture and their willingness to help clients; I wanted to be part of that team.”
A Day in the Life: Alex is a fan favorite in the office, not least because he’s so willing to wade into the fray. “A good day for me is when I have the opportunity to work on multiple tasks and solve various things throughout the day. I feel accomplished at the end of the day when I’ve been able to help my co-workers and the clients.”
A Weekend Day in the Life: Alex enjoys spending time in the outdoors, and loves taking his two boys out to play sports and go fishing and hiking. In his free time, he makes spending time with his family his number one priority.
Projects that Inspire: Alex’s design portfolio at Studio RED includes a variety of noteworthy projects, including Mims Baptist Church and The Woodlands Church East Campus, and civic projects such as the Salvation Army Community Center and SEARCH Homeless Services.
One He Won’t Forget: His favorite project to date was the private home at Echo Valley Ranch, located in the Texas Hill Country. Alex and Bill Neuhaus worked together on the design: “There are several unique aspects about the project, one of which includes a lookout tower. At night, because they’re out in the Hill Country, there are no distractions from city lights, and they can really take in the beauty of the night sky.”
