Personalities

Shannon Gaffney is the chief creative director and one of the founding principals of SkB Architects. She is an architect, interior designer and planner shaping a diverse range of places from mixed-use, commercial office buildings, workplace, restaurants, retail spaces, residential and furniture products.

Shannon has a passion for engaging audiences in dynamic conversations about placemaking and last year lead a joint presentation with Microsoft about the creation of their Global Design Language at the 2017 World Design Summit in Montreal, Canada. Shannon is also a recipient of a 2018 IIDA INAward which is bestowed to an individual who has made significant contributions to the growth and prominence of the profession of interior design.

Whether outside or in, large or small, office or residence; the study of community and city life dynamics plays a significant role in kick-starting ideas for every project. Generation of those ideas is a rigorous pursuit of many ideas in a short time frame, and a rapid fire design approach, to test ideas and to test boundaries. “Some people think out loud; I draw out loud…and a LOT”.
