The JZA+D design firm has added two project designers to its roster–Yadie Meko and Stewart Tillyer.
Meko received a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where she was a board member of ARCHtank, the undergraduate student architecture association. She received a master of science degree in architecture from at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Her architectural and interior design experience includes design development and delivery for several UPenn Libraries projects.
Tillyer received a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Syracuse University School of Architecture. While there he participated in the Syracuse University Abroad Program, studying in London, England and Florence, Italy. Prior to joining JZA+D, he worked in design development for outpatient clinics in the Bronx, N.Y.
Joshua Zinder, JZA+D managing partner, says the additions come as the firm looks to expand its portfolio of hospitality, multifamily, retail, workplace, and academic work.
“Yadie and Stewart come from entirely different backgrounds, but both are creative, hardworking, and talented,” says Zinder. “After just a short time since starting with us, the firm is already better off for their contributions.”
