COLE Architects is excited to announce two additions to its leadership team. The firm has promoted Jennifer Mohr and Ian Schmidt to Partner, joining Matt Huffield, Ian Hoffman, and Tim Grissom in COLE’s ownership group.

Mohr is a well-rounded and versatile architect; her passion is projects in the Treasure Valley that make an impact on the local community. Jennifer is a problem solver and is consistent in attention to detail. Always aware of the environmental impacts of design, she strives to find the right systems and materials, tailored for each project. Mohr is a masters graduate of the University of Tennessee and a LEED Accredited Professional for Building Design and Construction. She is involved in AIA Idaho serving as Secretary/Treasurer and is a member of the City of Boise Planning & Zoning Commission.
Ian Schmidt leads the COLE Architects team in the Bend, Oregon office. His leadership skills and ability to guide multidisciplinary teams has been a great asset in his time at COLE as he has shown his ability to build shared direction, synthesize complex ideas, and collaborate across diverse situations, stakeholders, and cultures.
Schmidt’s expanded role will include business development and project management. He will continue to be actively involved in firm management and various projects, overseeing design, production, and operations. Ian is a masters graduate from the University of Washington, serves as Director-Elect for AIA Oregon, Bend Section, and sits on various Affordable Housing committees and boards.
As COLE Architects looks to the future with the newly expanded leadership team, the firm continues to focus on providing excellent design services to their clients while creating the best opportunities for professional growth and work satisfaction for their entire team. “Jennifer and Ian’s leadership will help strengthen our firm,” Matt Huffield, Managing Partner stated. “These talented individuals will lead COLE Architects into the future, pushing the boundaries of design and architecture’s impact in the community.”
