A Montgomery architecture firm has expanded into Birmingham with a brick-and-mortar presence and a new principal hire.
Chambless King Architects opened an office at 1109 22nd St. S. and has named Jared Fulton principal in the firm.
Fulton most recently was head of the commercial design division at Christopher Architecture and Interiors and as an architect with Williams Blackstock Architects.
Fulton’s work in the Birmingham area includes the Caliber Sports Store, Panache by Domestique Coffee, Vestavia Hills City Hall, Lewis Communications corporate office, Bettola, and master planning for the Pepper Place district. He is also the co-owner of Plenty Design Coop, a modern, handcrafted furniture company, and operates Commonplace, an artist studio and community space in Woodlawn.
“Extending our presence into Birmingham was a natural step in the firm’s growth strategy,” said John Chambless, co-founder and principal. “It’s an exciting time in the city’s renewal and we are proud to be part of the progress. We feel a responsibility to proactively listen and engage, to be locals that truly serve the communities where we live and work. Jared has an impressive record of innovative design and profound understanding of the unique landscape of Birmingham. His talents and creativity will be essential in this next chapter.”
