The Turett Collaborative (TTC), a multidisciplinary architecture and interior design practice founded in 1991 by architect Wayne Turett, has named two new partners: James Saisakorn and Aleksandr (Alex) Nizhikhovskiy. Both bring years of experience in design and project planning to TTC’s leadership.
James Saisakorn joined TTC in 2004. Saisakorn’s understanding of construction, coupled with his knowledge of municipal codes, landmarks, and zoning has helped to guide many of the firm’s projects from the kernel of an idea to their ultimate completion.
Alex Nizhikhovskiy has been a member of the TTC team for over eight years. He is a licensed architect in the state of New York, with a Master in Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Architecture from the Spitzer School of Architecture at the City College of New York. He previously spent five years as a junior designer at Montoya-Rodriguez Architects + Planners, where he focused on public projects, primarily public schools, and other educational buildings. Nizhikhovskiy now manages Turett’s numerous private residential projects, with a particular affinity for client collaboration and mentoring junior staff.
“We are thrilled to welcome James and Aleksandr to the partnership,” says Turett. “Together they will strengthen our identity as a firm and our commitment to collaboration, sustainability, and inventiveness.”
