Kevin provides strategic direction, vision and intellectual design leadership to the firm. His body of work includes seminal healthcare, science and campus planning projects which have been consistently recognized nationally for their attention to detail, social geometry and integration of the landscape into transformative spaces. Kevin believes that an in-depth understanding of a building’s program and site provide the fundamental palette for each project. This knowledge is combined with the concept of transparency, both literal and phenomenal; in his practice, Kevin strives to provide a deep logic to forms and spaces.
