Architecture firm Three, formerly Three Living Architecture, has launched a new brand identity as part of its expansion into new areas of hospitality. The latest moves include new projects and the hiring of two new leaders along with a promotion for a long-time senior team member. At the same time, the firm has updated its name to go along with its new identity. 

Stepping into the role of principal, longtime Three team member Christine Cook continues her 25-year affiliation with the firm. New additions to Three’s architectural staff are Steven Knox as designer and senior job captain as well as Catherine Wilson, who joins Three in the role of project manager.  

First joining three in 1998, architect Cook has spent most of her decades-long career focused on senior-living works. In her role as principal, Cook will oversee the design and development process from the earliest visioning phases through construction and into post-occupancy evaluations. Cook also continues to serve as a mentor, spearheading the firm’s internal education committee, 3.edu.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Brand new to the team, designer Knox has worked on a range of large-scale projects, including the Texas Lone Star Brewery Renovation in San Antonio and the 100,000-square-foot San Francisco Chinese Hospital. In his new role, Knox will support the firm’s growing portfolio of projects, overseeing everything from client contact and predesign to full project delivery and construction administration.

As project manager, Wilson will lead new projects Three has underway in the hospitality and senior-living sectors. With more than 23 years of experience as a project architect, designer and construction administration expert, Wilson has worked on a number of major projects including the adaptive reuse of The Women’s Museum in Dallas and the 95,000-square-foot Wellness and Recreational Sports Complex Center at the University of Texas.

As part of its growth, Three has stepped up its recruitment efforts with ongoing outreach to regional architecture schools.  

Three is in the process of completing multiple projects for The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas and recently completed a large project for The Crescent Hotel in the same city. The company also is working on a luxury hotel in the Caribbean.
