Australian architecture firm, Crone, has promoted seven of their employees, positioning itself as an equal-opportunity firm that recognises individual and team accomplishments.

Of the seven employees, two were promoted to senior associate, while the other five were promoted to associate level.

The two new senior associates are Stephen Harris, who has over 30 years of experience across large-scale projects; and Ashley Dennis, one of the lead designers on the Sulman Medal-winning Orange Regional Museum.

Maria Guardala, Sally Hsu, Warren Meyer, Ariana Rodriguez, and Andrew Woodward were promoted to associate level.

“Our vibrant, young studio recognises employees with a diverse range of skills in design, management and technology to ensure the continued growth and future success of the practice,” says Sandra Furtado, Crone design director.

"At Crone, we aim to constantly promote and improve equality and diversity within the practice through gender, age, culture and skill-sets to preserve a collaborative studio where knowledge is shared.”

As well as being awarded the Sulman Medal, Crone’s Orange Regional Museum has recently been shortlisted for the 2017 Australian Urban Design Awards and the 2017 National Architecture Awards.
