Mike Janas has more than 16 years of experience as a project architect on multiple building types. With his strong technical background and comprehensive experience with interiors, renovations and large-scale hospitality projects, Mike bridges the gap between technical and design roles. A strong communicator, Mike points to large scale resort projects such as Grand Hyatt Incheon in Korea and Westin Denver Airport as the jobs that helped him recognize and hone his skill for managing relationships among clients, consultants, and contractors. Recognized as specialist in hotel planning and programming, Mike consults with project teams in other offices to bring his knowledge of brand and hotel operations to all of Gensler’s hospitality projects. As a Design Realization leader for Gensler’s Los Angeles office, and a Technical Director for the office, Mike ensures quality of project delivery, integration between technical, design, and management disciplines. Mike travels internationally as much as he can, sampling cultures and broadening his horizons. He loves the architecture of London, the urban life of Shanghai, and the resorts of Thailand.
