Executive Assistant



SITELAB urban studio’s mission is to shape places from the ground up. A San Francisco-based design and strategy firm, SITELAB was founded in 2012 with the vision of engaging urban design as a social practice, beyond technical or formal study alone. SITELAB operates at the intersection of analysis and inspiration, with an expanded approach that merges urban design with design strategy, community engagement, graphic design and communications, in order to improve, grow, and create opportunity in our cities.

The team at SITELAB (10 of us so far) are smart, curious, creative and humble. We all care about our work, about the issues in San Francisco and the Bay Area, and look for opportunities to contribute -- to the conversation, to the city, and to each other. SITELAB’s founder, Laura Crescimano, leads multiple complex projects, and is as focused on delivering quality impactful work and being client-driven as she is on building a collaborative culture within the office.
