Cadet joins Anne Fletcher (managing principal), Julianne Knox (marketing principal) and David Frey (technical principal) on the office’s leadership team. Her first day was July 12.
Cadet has 16 years of experience working in all phases of architecture on innovative projects throughout the West Coast. She joins HOK from a large firm in Los Angeles, where she was a principal and design director. Her recent projects have included the Robertson Lane mixed-use development in West Hollywood, the West Hollywood EDITION hotel, the Jasper residential tower in San Francisco and the Two Lincoln Tower apartment building in Bellevue, Washington.
Before moving to Los Angeles in 2013, Cadet worked in San Francisco and Dallas. She is active in the SoCal NOMA chapter and often mentors architecture and interior design students. She earned her Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Prairie View A&M University.
“I am excited to bring my unique design perspective to HOK,” said Cadet. “Together, we will deliver exceptional designs that beautifully meet the needs of the client, users and the community.”
“Adaeze will bring tremendous energy and design leadership to continue building on the recent growth and success of our Los Angeles studio,” said Chairman and CEO Bill Hellmuth. “We’re thrilled to welcome her to HOK.”
