Jon Molkentin RA, CDT
Senior Project Architect : Associate
My favorite projects have always been historical restoration and adaptive reuse; and over my career, I have had the opportunity to work on many of the established buildings and landmarks in Milwaukee and beyond. I enjoy revisiting how a building has been used in the past, seeing where it is now and envisioning what the next chapter will be. Prior to being an architect, I worked in facility management, so I relate to our clients and understand their project goals. By staying available to the client throughout the project and informing them of progress, I am able to quickly address any concerns that may arise. My philosophy is to make sure you enjoy the ride because while this can be a stressful process, I try to make it fun and easy. Each project is an amazing opportunity for a company, often changing the culture so it’s important that my clients and their staff feel just as excited. When I’m home I also try to enjoy the ride, spending as much time as I can with my family; life tends to go by fast and furious and with the kids growing up, I don’t want to miss any of it.
