Pia Westen, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Associate

Pia graduated from the University of Kansas with a Master of Architecture degree and an appreciation for all things Dan Rockhill. Her recent experience with Studio 804, a not-for-profit design-build studio out of Kansas, has deepened her understanding of the interdisciplinary relationship between design and construction, and the ways method, time, and cost affect all levels of design. Outside the office, she can be found on the tennis court, sailing the sound with her family, or playing the cello when hiding from the rain.

Lively engagement results in extraordinary places.

SHKS Architects finds elegance in necessity, elevating the core principles of each unique site and building project to reflect our clients' aspirations.

Through collaboration, care, craft, and discovery, we reveal architecture's inherent optimism, contributing to our local community and to the global stewardship of natural and built environments.
