The tireless, creative, altruistic spirit that SkB brings to the challenges facing industry, each design problem, and on behalf of their client is remarkable. I’ve found working with the dynamic, collaborative energies of this firm as one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional career.

I had a rather rookie perspective on what to expect from an architect. But I had high expectations. What you contributed – and what you accomplished – was much, much greater than what I expected. You went beyond the call of duty. You put your heart and soul into it along with your shoulder. And you inspired me. In fact, you built our future. For that, I thank you. I’ll never forget.

I appreciate how your team has been both level headed and open minded in what can sometimes be a difficult and stressful process to negotiate.

I am consistently impressed with how well you are prepared for public meetings. Your graphics and design are sophisticated... you’re able to clearly articulate how the design responds to the requirements and guidance from the Board and staff... this is a rare combination of skills.

SkB were fantastic to work with from start to finish and beyond. They presented three fantastic concepts - and were very involved throughout the project. They partnered closely with my contractor and subs to ensure every detail was executed to perfection. The end product is just beautiful (in fact several magazines and a TV show have requested to photograph it)...

Needless to say, SkB are my “go to” team for design projects... and I have referred several friends to them who have had equally great experiences with them. Highly recommend!”

Since we are in the creative business we know the keys to a successful creative product. SkB gets very high grades in all areas. They are not only excellent listeners; they probe with just the right questions at the right time. They quickly assimilated the data and developed a vision and strategy to bring the project in on time and on budget.
