RKD Architects, Inc
4 Reviews
Sculptural, contemporary, site-specific architecture is our specialty. Each RKD design shares a connection to the environment, because our structures grow from their sites. We seek a constant dialogue between interior and exterior and combine organic materials with unconventional shapes; melding form and function. Our designs, coined contemporary rustic or mountain modern style, have evolved over the past 24 years, with a remarkable diversity of projects that always echo the natural landscape.

Feel free to reach out to us, we would love to hear from you!

Commented: is that some sort of copper accent on the beams? It does look like copper in this photo! But it is actually a strip light shining on the top of the beam. The light is recessed into the ceiling along both sides of the beam.

Commented: is the stone a manufactured stone or real stone? If manufactured who? This is real limestone, cut at the quarry. It's about an inch thick which allowed us to cut and wrap the corners to look continuous.
