Ken Smith, Architect
Managing Partner

“Always do what’s needed to accomplish great things as a team.”

Ken Smith grew up in a family of builders and became interested in architecture at a very early age. Luckily for him, his passion for design also fit his skill set. From the beginning, he has enjoyed looking at – and stretching thinking – on everything from big picture-design down to the most minute, functional details.

With more than three decades of national and international architectural experience, Ken’s dynamic approach to the design process has earned him a reputation for delivering innovative, trend-setting plans in Mixed-Use, Retail and Entertainment spaces. He enjoys helping clients create “something that’s never been seen before.”
