Michael Hanrahan, who is based at the firm’s headquarters in Trenton, earns the promotion after more than 20 years with the practice. The firm noted that he has led many of its notable architecture projects, with a specialty in revitalizing historic buildings such as the historic Hunterdon County Courthouse, home of the famed Lindbergh baby kidnapping trial of the 1930s.
Hanrahan has been an active member of the New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects since 1999 and rose to AIA-NJ president in 2011, according to his bio. He was recognized in 2012 as a recipient of the AIA National Young Architect Award and is currently the New Jersey regional representative to the National AIA Strategic Council, assisting the architecture profession on important, upcoming professional issues and opportunities.
His other notable projects include the adaptive reuse of the former Princeton University boiler house as new university administrative offices, the firm said. Currently, Hanrahan is working on the restoration of Lambert Castle for Passaic County and the restoration of the Hoboken Public Library.
Hanrahan is also a past president of Preservation New Jersey, a statewide nonprofit organization promoting economic vitality, sustainability and heritage of New Jersey’s diverse communities.
