Leading international architecture and design firm TPG Architecture is pleased to announce the hire of Suo Lien and Ricardo Nabholz as Creative Directors. This announcement comes on the heels of the firm’s continued growth — both in its staff and expansion into new market sectors. The appointment of Suo and Ricardo represents an exciting and strategic move for the steadily growing practice, which has cultivated an impressive portfolio of projects as it nears its 40th year anniversary.
“We are thrilled to welcome Suo and Ricardo to our team,” comments James Phillips, Founder and Managing Executive. “Both come to us with extensive design knowledge and relevant industry experience and we look forward to their contributions to the firm’s continued success, bringing forth a fresh approach and perspective to the company.” Ricardo will support the TPG team with a goal of elevating ongoing and future projects while Suo will be responsible for bridging the gap between workplace strategy and design, in order to achieve a fluid transition from pre-design to concept and project completion.
Ricardo comes on board with over 15 years of industry experience and has taught at the Bauhaus-Universität in Weimar, Germany, as well as at his alma mater, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This year, he served as a panelist for the Pan-Africa Interior Design Summit, where he spoke on “Strength in Business.” Ricardo has led projects in a wide variety of sectors including hospitality, residential, and academic, which have earned him industry-wide recognition. “What drew me to TPG specifically was the opportunity to be truly entrepreneurial and to contribute to the growth of the firm in a meaningful way,” says Ricardo.
Suo has over two decades of expertise in workplace design in a vast range of project types such as media and entertainment, financial, and Fortune 500 companies. She has won the 2004 IIDA Decade of the Design Award for her work on Swiss Re Financial Services, and a 2006 Pantone award for her work on Sun Chemical. More recently, she spearheaded workplace strategy for the recently completed Telemundo headquarters in Miami. “It’s an exciting time to join TPG and work alongside some of the most talented and dedicated professionals in the field,” comments Suo.
With a growing team and several new projects set to open in the coming months, TPG Architecture continues to establish itself as the go-to firm for commercial, retail, healthcare, and hospitality interiors in North America and abroad.
