From concept, through development and into project completion, KMW is committed to a design approach which demands the full creative involvement of the architect and the client. The process is one of listening, asking, analyzing and engaging each client as a participant in design. The collaboration explores possible physical solutions suggested from a thorough understanding of the project’s needs and unique parameters of the site. The shared goal is to reveal the project’s singular nature and to discover through design an identity that is individual and memorable.
Our success in this approach is best measured by our clients whose opinions we encourage you to seek. Another measure is the recognition our work has received through numerous national and regional awards. Among them are 8 AIA Honor Awards, 3 AIA/Brick In Architecture Awards and 18 design awards from the Boston Society of Architects (BSA). In addition, KMW holds 6 Harleston Parker Medals awarded jointly by the BSA and The City of Boston for design of “the most beautiful building” in Boston’s metropolitan area. In 1984, KMW received the AIA Firm of the Year Award. The citation notes “the firm’s capacity to produce work of human value and lasting significance.”
