BUILT TO BE
KNBA provides services in architecture, master planning, interiors and urban planning. The firm has offices in Louisville and Lexington and serves the Commonwealth of Kentucky. KNBA has an accomplished and diverse portfolio with primary focus in preservation and adaptive re-use; higher education; community living and state government projects.
KNBA’s broad portfolio of work includes development and preservation of the cultural heritage of our community. Whether it is our work on many of the historic buildings of West Main Street in Louisville, the Kentucky Capitol in Frankfort, the Historic Fayette County Courthouse, or the Speed Art Museum , we are proud that our work is linked to our collective cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, and economic legacies – all the things that quite literally make us who we are.
The partners at KNBA strongly believe that the key to the success of any project is close cooperation between the client and the architect during the infancy of a project. Fully defining and understanding the clients’ needs and desires provides us with the information necessary to focus, communicate, and ultimately shape the direction the project must take. The organizational structure of the firm is designed to ensure the firm meets the standards of quality to which it is devoted.
From the earliest days of the company, our focus has been on three founding principles – Creating timeless architectural design, restoring historically significant structures, and sustaining our communities, environment, and the profession through our commitment to service. KNBA is honored to have worked with a diverse group of clients over 50 successful years in a variety of markets and building types. We are proud of our legacy of personal service to our clients; advocating for their aspirations while being stewards of their budgets; and participation in our larger community and our profession through volunteer activities.
