CHARLESTON, WV, January 2018

Silling is pleased to announce the additions of Marie McCauley, Mitchell Riggleman, Josh Tawney, and Joey Kutz to the firm. Born and raised in Ripley, WV, Marie is a licensed architect with over ten’s experience and will serve a valuable role in contributing to our creative design studio. She has worked on a variety of architectural projects for educational, governmental, and non-profit organizations. Prior to joining Silling, Marie served as Project Architect and/or Project Manager for a number of West Virginia secondary school projects, including the new Gauley River Elementary School, Kenna Elementary School, Ripley Elementary Early Learning Center, and John Adams Middle School, among others.

Josh, a Charleston native, joins Silling after living and practicing in New York City for several years. A former intern with our firm, he graduated from Cornell University’s School of Architecture, Art, & Planning in 2008. He brings with him a breadth of experience, ranging from commercial and residential projects to interior and branding expertise. His travels, ranging from Europe to South America to Asia, inform his sense of design as he applies what he has gleaned in site-specific applications. Josh most recently worked with Frederick Tang Architecture and Prophet in New York City.

Mitchell received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Tennessee College of Architecture and Design in 2012 where he received the Henry Adams AIA Certificate of Merit, given to the salutatorian of the 5-year undergraduate program. In 2016, following three years working in professional practice, an interest in the role of atmosphere and the subjective experience in architecture led him to pursue further research at McGill University where he received a Master of Architecture with a focus in History and Theory.

A native of St. Albans, WV, Joey is a 2017 graduate of The University of Tennessee’s architecture program. He was a past recipient of several educational scholarships including the AIA West Virginia Scholarship (2017), the Floyd Clingenpeel Scholarship (2017), and the CIE Study Abroad Scholarship (2015).

We look forward to each of their innovative contributions to the architectural discourse of our design practice!
