Multidisciplinary Collective Created to Expand the Firm’s Capability to Provide Global-Caliber Design

MELBOURNE, FLA. Feb. 7, 2024 – BRPH, a nationally ranked architecture, engineering and construction firm with 10 offices nationwide, announced today the creation of ThirdSpace(TM), a creative design collective created to expand and leverage the firm’s multi-disciplinary capabilities in providing global-caliber design services to clients.

Simultaneously, the company announced the promotion of Matthew Flores, AIA, and Cristi Moore, ASID, IIDA, NCIDQ, as Chief Design and Creative Leaders jointly responsible for cultivating the ThirdSpace collective and infusing BRPH’s cross-sector projects with innovative, human-centered design ideas. Flores formerly served as BRPH’s Eastern Regional Design and Creativity Leader. Moore also serves as National Practice Leader, Interior Design, a role she will retain as she moves into her new leadership position.

“This new group is being formed to draw attention to the innovative ways BRPH’s design professionals and design processes serve our clients and help meet their challenges by focusing on design for the human element,” said Brian Curtin, CEO. “While BRPH has earned a reputation for innovation and strong technical capabilities, our team is equally adept at elevated architectural and interior design where clients choose to place greater emphasis on design experiences for their people and customers. ThirdSpace gives clients access to exceptional design talent on par with the highly technical expertise BRPH is known to provide.”

The newly formed collective will focus on projects in all the firm’s sectors where elevated design principles and a hospitality-based approach are essential to achieving client goals. In addition to providing elevated architecture, interior design, branding and creative services, the ThirdSpace team will partner with other BRPH professionals in master planning and multi-discipline engineering, as well as preconstruction services and cost estimating, to help owners make their projects a reality in today’s challenging capital and construction markets. BRPH serves clients in Aerospace & Defense, Manufacturing, Hospitality, Entertainment, Commercial and Education sectors.

Moore cited BRPH’s storytelling and hospitality-inspired approach as key elements of the new group’s mission that are relevant and will be applied to all types of projects. “First place is where you live, second place is where you work. Third place is where you want to be, and we call that place ThirdSpace,” she explained.

Flores added, “We want our clients to know that we are clearly focused on helping them create spaces that encourage people to gather, connect, learn, play and thrive, especially in places where cultivating loyalty, delight and innovation are paramount.”
