RA, LEED AP
Simeon Seigel has worked with The Turett Collaborative in one capacity or another for over twenty years. Immediately after earning a B.A. at Columbia University in Architecture and Music, Seigel started working with Turett, where he project-managed retail, food service and corporate work. During a six-year hiatus he earned his Master of Architecture from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design where he was named both a Thayer Scholar and a Lehman Scholar. He was awarded the AIA Henry Adams Medal, and graduated with Distinction, and as valedictorian, in 2002.
Seigel worked for several years at Koetter, Kim and Associates in Boston. Alongside his design duties there, he also devised and implemented CAD protocols and customized software for communicating with a nationwide design team for a $1.1B corporate campus design. Seigel created digital tools for automating the seamless translation of documents from different platforms and disparate technical software.
A few notable TTC projects helmed by Seigel include the townhouses at 109 Waverly Place, 137 West 77th Street, and 2 No Moore; the penthouse at 101 W 67th Street; multifamily new construction at 15 Leonard Street; and the public Comfort Station at Brooklyn’s Bush Terminal Park.
Today, Seigel is a Partner at TTC, as well as a LEED-accredited professional. He is involved in all aspects of design and project management for projects of all types. He is tasked with managing the competing needs of the dozen-or-so projects on TTC’s boards at any given time, properly staffing them and overseeing them for quality assurance, complete client satisfaction, budget and timeline.
Seigel is also a performing pianist, and a New York Times published crossword constructor. He lives in the Windsor Terrace neighborhood of Brooklyn.
