OUR STORY

SKB Architecture and Design has been designing high quality workplaces and commercial architecture for innovative clients around the country and the world since 1982. Based in Washington, DC and Redwood City, California, SKB has built a reputation of design excellence, remarkable technical knowledge and exceptional service.

OUR PEOPLE

It is fundamental to the firm's principles that every design professional at SKB can work effectively in any role of a team. Nonetheless, the staff brings together diverse expertise from architecture, urban design, graphic design, lighting design, workplace visioning, furniture design, sustainable design and value engineering. The staff are assigned to meet the specific needs of the project and to further the individual staff member's exposure to the breadth of the profession. Maintaining this organizational philosophy allows everyone in the firm to keep bringing new, fresh ideas to the table in an exciting, collaborative setting.

 

SKB's capabilities extend far beyond the typical practice of architecture and interior design. From initial feasibility studies to post-occupancy evaluations, from master planning to base building to furniture design.
