We are pleased to announce the promotions of Lexie Costic AIA; David Heck AIA, LEED AP BD+C; and Robert Wright AIA, LEED AP to Associates. For their versatility in design; their inclusive approach to managing projects; their responsiveness to our clients, and the high quality of their work and ethics we are thrilled to make them part of our leadership team.
The golden ratio, or rule of threes, dates to the ancient Greeks. Found throughout nature and used in architecture and design, it states that when a line or space is divided into thirds, the human eye finds the results more natural and pleasing.
At RMC, the rule of threes provides the focal points for aligning these three talented architects’ most prominent attributes and enables balance, while highlighting the contours and silhouettes of each of their skills harmoniously.
Lexie Costic AIA
Lexie joined RMC in 2016 and has distinguished herself as an excellent mentor, big picture thinker, and detailed project manager. She has earned the confidence of our clients who trust her with their vision and appreciate her attention to detail. Lexie brings unique perspectives to building renovation and restoration from her background in archaeology and historic preservation prior to becoming a registered architect. Her project contributions include the Mount Baker Theatre Renovation, SWIFT Center Assembly Hall Exterior Renovation, and Bellingham Central Library Renovation.
David Heck AIA, LEED AP BD+C
David joined RMC in 2019. He is regarded for his nimble, proactive approach leading complex projects while maintaining a spirit of levity. David’s ability to think critically about architecture and design enables him to balance both form and function, making him an astute problem solver who has earned the respect of clients and project teams. He enjoys planning for density in and around urban landscapes and is currently working on a private Main Street Townhouse development in Lynden, WA for Bouma.
