Francis Cauffman, a leading Philadelphia and New York City-based architecture, planning and interior design firm, is pleased to announce that Mark Harbick, RA, IIDA, LEED AP, has joined the company as Principal and Corporate Practice Leader for their New York City office.

An architect with over 25 years of experience in creating progressive workplace environments, Harbick joins Francis Cauffman with great enthusiasm. Harbick has been acquainted with the firm and its leaders, President John Campbell and Partner Anthony Colciaghi, for many years and is proud to now have the opportunity to work alongside the team. With a goal to grow the firm’s presence in New York City, Harbick will lead the New York Corporate Workplace Practice, as well as oversee all aspects of the firm’s Manhattan office, including research, design, and marketing.

“Mark comes to Francis Cauffman with a uniquely diverse portfolio that adds to the depth and capability of the firm in terms of design and innovation,” says John Campbell. “We’re really looking forward to having him onboard as we continue to grow our Corporate Workplace portfolio.”

A graduate of the University of Detroit School of Architecture, Harbick’s innovative and award-winning work has been widely published in leading architecture and design media.

Some of his most notable work includes projects for clients such as Bloomberg, Pixar Studios, NBC Sports, Bloomingdale’s, and Mercedes-Benz.

“In this era of shrinking footprints and decreasing budgets, it’s more important than ever for design to respond to and elevate the human experience,” Harbick says. “I’m excited to join such a talented and like-minded team. I look forward to working with them to grow and strengthen the Francis Cauffman brand and portfolio in New York and beyond.”

With a growing team and new projects set to debut over the next few months, Francis Cauffman is looking forward to furthering the establishment of their brand as the go-to firm for corporate workplace, healthcare, academic research, S&T and advanced technology projects.
