Build only what is necessary. Touch the ground lightly. Salvage what can be reused. Detail for durability. Stair made from reclaimed trestle timbers.

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.
