Exceptional design by exceptional people. We are pleased to announce the promotion of team members within our Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles offices. Please join us in congratulating these exceptional individuals.

Mithun has promoted JoAnn Hindmarsh Wilcox to Partner. JoAnn is a nationally recognized expert in the design of learning environments from early childhood development centers to K-12 schools and higher education campuses. She has 25 years of experience collaborating with clients to co-create spaces that amplify curriculum, maximize resources, foster community belonging, strengthen student agency and uplift learning outcomes. Recent efforts include a new mass timber academic and physical education building for the Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Youth, which is based on findings from the Building Better Schools Mithun R+D study; The Evergreen School Campus Expansion; and planning and building projects with Bainbridge Island, Highline, Lake Washington, Northshore and Renton public school districts.

Mithun has promoted Evan Bourquard and Tim House to Principal.

Evan Bourquard is a keen problem-solver known for his skill at leading complex renovations for civic and higher education clients, including historic structures and buildings with ongoing operations during construction. Recent projects include the award-winning ARTS at King Street Station, Green Lake Community Boathouse and multiple renovations for the University of Washington including the Art Building and Haring Center.
