Renee Sprogis-Marohn, AIA

Joining SCB in 2011 as a Project Architect, Renee quickly asserted herself as a leader within the SCB Interiors Studio. As a Project Manager, she worked closely with senior leadership to grow the SCB Interiors Studio and in 2014 assumed the role of Studio Leader, managing the operations of a 40+ person team with a portfolio of high-profile projects around the country. In addition to her role as Studio Leader, Renee was instrumental in managing many large, complex projects and a key team member in developing a multi-year relationship with United Airlines, one of SCB’s largest clients.

“Renee has demonstrated a tremendous amount of dedication to the Interiors team and to the firm as a whole. Her admirable work ethic, no-nonsense leadership style, and sense of humor have helped carry us through many successes.”

Ben Wrigley, AIA

Ben is a seasoned architect with over 20 years of experience designing urban multi-family and mixed-use projects across the globe. He joined SCB’s Chicago office in 2004 as a Project Architect, and three years later moved to San Francisco to help establish the firm’s west coast office. As a Studio Leader, Ben has helped foster a design culture at the firm rooted in collaboration and creativity. He has lead the design of some of SCB’s most notable and award-winning west coast projects including Park Lane Ala Moana in Honolulu and 1900 Broadway in Oakland.

“As luck would have it, 2007 turned out to be a challenging time to open a new practice with the onset of the economic downturn; however, Ben was central to our success, being part of the team that pursued new work and ensuring that the ongoing projects were of the highest quality.”
