Helpern Architects

Inho Suh, RA

Inho Suh has become Helpern Architects’ newest Associate. Inho joined the firm in 2013 and, according to President David Paul Helpern, “has become an increasingly valuable member of the firm’s design and planning team.”

Because of his design capability and parallel fluency in advanced computer modeling, Inho has been broadly involved in projects from feasibility studies to final designs.

He has, for instance, worked on the master plan and schematic design for Con Edison’s newest, 271,000-sf service center in Upper Manhattan. Also for Con Ed, he coordinated the “Office of the Future” upgrades to a Queens, NY facility and prepared for the retrofit and replacement of 2,600 windows at its headquarters building on Irving Place.

He has been a project architect on the total renovation of the Natatorium at CUNY/John Jay College that is nearing completion, as well as on the much-published, 290-key new AC Hotel by Marriott NY Times Square, which opened in 2018.

On the feasibility side, Inho is project architect on a 31-story luxury condominium planned for the Upper East Side of the city, as well as on a mixed-use commercial and residential complex to be built in Denver, Colorado.

Inho came to the States with degrees from two architecture programs in Seoul, Korea, and then received his Masters Degree in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. A licensed architect in New York State, he is also LEED-certified by the US Green Building Council.
