Phinney Design Group Announces New Hires



Phinney Design Group, a multidisciplinary architecture, interior design, and construction management firm located in Saratoga Springs, has hired three additional members to their team.  “It’s exciting to bring three additional team members on board with such impressive professional skill sets and creative intuition.  They will play a key role in the design efforts the firm will produce in the future,” said Michael Phinney, the Principal Architect at Phinney Design Group.

Brennan Drake has been hired by the Phinney Design Group as the Architect/Design Technology Coordinator.  As an architect, he will help the firm in designing and managing projects from inception to completion. Having an extensive history with BIM (Building Information Modeling), Brennan will help develop the office’s digital graphic standards for both presentations and construction documentation.  Brennan is passionate about sustainable design practices, one of the core values of Phinney Design Group.

Drake received his Master of Architecture from Boston Architectural College and Bachelor of Science in Architectural Technology at Alfred State College.  Brennan is an active member of American Institute of Architects Eastern New York Chapter, and has just joined the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation as a Board Member.

Katelyn Mulry has been hired by the Phinney Design Group as an Architectural Designer and Sustainability Coordinator.  Katelyn will add to the firm’s experience in the architectural field with a focus on “green” building design strategies and environmentally sensitive construction methodologies.

Mulry received her Master of Environmental Building Design from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Architecture from the New York Institute of Technology.   She was previously employed as an Intermediate Architect at The Spector Group Architects, in New York City.  Katelyn has previously been involved in design renderings for a variety of projects, including Deutsch Inc., Vayner Media, Hudson Yards, and the new Uber Headquarters.

Ashley Pezze has also joined Phinney Design Group as an Interior Designer.  Pezze will help the firm with both residential and commercial interior needs.  Ashley’s perception of clients’ design needs and her ability to take and create a visual representation of those individual needs makes her a valuable asset to any project.

Pezze received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from Rochester Institute of Technology and an Associate of Science in Liberal Arts and Sciences from Monroe Community College.   She was previously employed at Vargas Associates as an Interior Designer and a Relocation Manager.
