CCY Architects Names First Female Principal
CCY Architects, a design studio in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, recently announced that Maura Trumble has joined the ownership of the firm, becoming the first female principal. Since joining in 2012, Trumble has played an increasingly integral role at CCY, providing progressive insights and leadership to some of the firm’s most important projects and internal initiatives.
Her recent and ongoing work includes boutique hospitality projects in Telluride, Los Angeles, and the Coachella Valley, numerous private residences, and affordable housing for the Town of Telluride. In addition to her design leadership on these significant projects, Trumble is a critical member of the recruiting and sustainability initiatives in the office, continuing to advance equity in design and high-performance practices across project types. She has recently spoken at a variety of design events sponsored by Telluride Arts, the Aspen Art Museum, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, the Urban Land Institute, and Denver Design Week. Her work has also been featured on the Telluride Arts + Architecture Home Tour. In 2019, Maura was profiled in Aspen Magazine’s “New Generation of Design”, spotlighting prominent young designers in Aspen.
CCY Principal John Cottle notes “Maura is a natural leader – she cares about the people around her, is insightful, and her design passion is infectious. We’ve always valued progressive design thinking and practices, informed by deep experience, and we are proud that the continuing evolution of our firm leadership reflects those core beliefs. We have a group of very talented and passionate people in the firm, and it is gratifying to see our architecture, interiors, and sustainable initiatives continue to mesh
and produce powerful work.”
Based in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, CCY has established itself as a leader through its innovative architecture, interior design, and community planning projects, throughout the American West and beyond. The firm has been recognized with over 175 design awards for its multi-faceted approach to design that powerfully and responsibly connects built environments and people with the natural world. Their monograph Connection is currently on sale nationally, and their work also appears in Rocky Mountain Modern and Architzer – The World’s Best Architecture, all published by Monacelli Press.
