San Francisco's Custom Tailored Architecture
Design and service driven practice focused on modern design with creative detailing on a wide range of budgets. Ryan Knock, AIA, architect and principal of Knock A+D, is a Licensed architect in the State of California, a LEED accredited Professional and a Certified Green Building Professional. He earned a Bachelors Degree in 2001 from the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Urban Design, where he received several honors and awards. Knock Architecture and Design's Vision is to make modern, sustainable spaces that are rooted in place. Every project begins with a thorough documentation of the site and surrounding character, followed by in depth investigation into how the users and inhabitants plan to use the space and what their day to day patterns and inspiration and dreams are. This leads to highly tailored solutions to the local environment and community, and also inhabitants and end users. High attention to construction quality, detail, and finishing touches, with hands on service throughout the entire project, result in textured and rich spaces which speak to the way the materials are assembled, and represent the character of both the building within a neighborhood, and those who dwell in them.
