Humphreys & Partners’ New Orleans team is an essential part of the innovative, community-enhancing designs that make Humphreys the #1 ranked multifamily architect in North America. The team is also a champion of giving back to the local community. In January, Humphreys was invited to host a round table discussion as part of Loyola University New Orleans College of Business’ Executive Mentor Program pairing freshmen students with thriving local businesses. Students gathered at Humphreys’ New Orleans office and were given an overview of the architecture profession and how it intersects with other major industries like finance and real estate. Humphreys’ Project Coordinator Tim Morris and Business Developer McDaniel Wyatt spoke with the students about the architectural process and detailed how designs touch other professional sectors like real estate and financing. The students were also taken on a guided tour through the historic office, a renovated 1800s townhome in the heart of downtown, and given an overview of the team’s landmark communities, including an award-winning retirement community in nearby Baton Rouge.
“The goal of Humphreys’ roundtable discussion was to highlight the diverse internship and work experience opportunities open to students in fields they may not traditionally look, like architecture,” said Tim Morris. “To give the students real-world context for our work we discussed our most popular local New Orleans multifamily developments, including The Odeon the tallest building constructed in the city in 30 years.”
Humphreys’ New Orleans office is committed to being an active leader in the thriving local culture, whether it is mentoring local students or increasing quality of living through transit-oriented developments. The one-of-kind work culture of our architecture and design team in the Crescent City has not gone unnoticed: the office was named one of the Best Places to Work by New Orleans City Business. Humphreys’ New Orleans office is an excellent example of our firm’s culture of giving back to the local communities that inspire the innovative work we do.
