IA Interior Architects has opened a new office in Austin, Texas, and named Stephanie Long to lead it. Long, who joins IA as a managing director, is a commercial designer with more than 20 years of experience.
“Austin’s unprecedented growth has presented the commercial real estate community with a challenge to support our clients with meaningful solutions that elevate the user experience,” she says. “I’m honored to join IA to build a strong local practice that leverages its global perspectives on design and community.”
In a joint statement, IA co-ceos/presidents David Bourke and Tom Powers add: “We see Austin as a digital-savvy, diverse city and metropolitan area that we set our sights on over the last few years, so we were thrilled when Stephanie decided to join the IA team as the office leader. Stephanie has a great track record and her experience with retail and workplace design is the perfect fit for IA.”
The Austin office is IA’s 20th locale overall and third in Texas (the others are in Dallas and Houston).
