Kelso Architects
21 Reviews
It is with much gratitude that we thank our wonderful clients for enabling Kelso Architects to flourish over the past 21 years and allowing us to do what we love. During this time, we have established a reputation as a talented design firm with integrity, ingenuity, and commitment.

Mike and Lisa Kelso received intensive design and technical training at top-notch universities and world-renown architectural firms. Our imaginative designs and in-depth knowledge of technical matters are a reflection of our expert training.

We attribute much of our success to the close working relationship we form with our clients. Our projects demonstrate a respect for our clients’ goals, aesthetics, budget, and schedule.

We listen carefully, engage actively, and respond thoughtfully. We believe that beautiful architecture comes in many styles and value our clients’ aesthetic sense and input. Realistic construction costs are provided early in the design process so that our clients are able to make informed design decisions. As a result, their completed projects are within budget.

We believe in a team approach between the owner, architect, and contractor. This collaboration often results in a relationship with our clients that extends well past the conclusion of a project.

Commented: exterior columns and railings Hi, Thank you for the compliment on the columns. The wood is stained mahogany. They are custom designed and custom fabricated so I'm afraid you won't be able to find them anywhere.
