Brent Capron has been named the interior design director at Perkins+Will’s New York office. Bringing more than two decades of experience to the firm, Capron will spearhead the corporate interiors practice and strengthen client relationships in the Northeast region.
“I’m really looking forward to tapping into the young and creative energy at Perkins+Will and creating industry-defining work,” says Capron. Capron previously served as an associate principal, sector leader for workplace interiors, and client stream director at Woods Bagot’s New York office from 2011 to 2016. Prior to that, he served as associate principal, senior designer, and shareholder at STUDIOS Architecture, also in New York, since 1999. He began his career in Los Angeles as a designer with Gensler and Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer.
Capron's advice to young designers? "Take on new and unique projects that challenge your knowledge of design, experiment with new materials, and reach out to work with new people with whom you would not normally have an opportunity to collaborate. As my partner says, 'Go all in—if you're going to be scared, you might as well be terrified.' If you are up for the challenge, send me your resumé."
