The Turett Collaborative Looks to Future Growth with Addition of Saisakorn and Nizhikhovskiy

NEW YORK, NY — The Turett Collaborative (TTC), an architecture and interiors firm founded in 1991 by Wayne Turett, has named two new Partners: James Saisakorn, RA, and Aleksandr Nizhikhovskiy, RA. Alongside Turett, Director of Interior Design Jessica Shaw, and Partner Simeon Seigel, RA (pictured right), the new partners will lead the firm’s growth into new markets, emerging technologies, and evolving aesthetics.

“We are thrilled to welcome James and Aleksandr to the partnership,” Turett said. “Together they will strengthen our identity as a firm and our commitment to collaboration, sustainability, and inventiveness. Collectively bringing a variety of distinctly valuable expertise, passions, and capabilities to the table, this next generation will continue to provide clients with innovative design and a future-forward perspective.”

James Saisakorn, RA, Partner
Saisakorn joined TTC in 2004. After studying architecture in Switzerland at the Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne (EPFL), he returned to complete his Bachelor of Architecture with a double major in French from Carnegie Mellon University in 1996. Notably, his past work on energy-efficient and green building design contributed to the production and publication of the 1996 Building Design Manual for the Pennsylvania Energy Code.

Saisakorn has applied his expertise to many residential, commercial, and institutional projects throughout the years — from residential projects for private clients to larger commercial projects. With a long-held appreciation for brutalist architecture, he currently resides in Manhattan. As a native of Chicago, James’ inspiration and fascination with modern architecture from an early age led him to where he is today.

Alex Nizhikhovskiy, RA, Partner
Nizhikhovskiy has been a member of the TTC team for over eight years. Nizhikhovskiy is a licensed Architect in the state of New York, with a Master in Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Architecture from the Spitzer School of Architecture at the City College of New York, where he was recognized with the AIA Henry Adams Medal. He previously spent five years as a Junior Designer at Montoya-Rodriguez Architects + Planners, where he focused on public projects, primarily public schools, and other educational buildings.

Nizhikhovskiy now manages Turett’s numerous private residential projects, with a particular affinity for client collaboration and mentoring junior staff. Outside of the practice, Alex mentors students and sits on design juries at his alma mater, the Spitzer School of Architecture. Nizhikhovskiy was raised in New York City and now resides in Brooklyn.
