Listening is the core value and guiding force of all principles and practices at KG+D Architects, PC. Our team’s first priority is to listen with the intent to understand. We firmly believe that ‘listening,’ the first word in our design philosophy, “Listen, Imagine, Build.” is critical for the success of all projects.

We listen to understand.
We actively imagine potential.
We responsibly build toward the future.

By endeavoring to first understand our clients, we are able to effectively translate their visions and goals into thoughtfully designed and skillfully executed architecture. The dynamic team that works to translate our client’s visions is comprised of architects, professional engineers, interior designers, construction inspectors and support personnel.

The team is led by firm principals and owners, Russell A. Davidson, FAIA, Erik A. Kaeyer, AIA, LEED AP and Walter P. Hauser, AIA and includes two associate principals, five associates and twenty technical and support staff team members. KG+D values their young professional staff and as such, supports their team members in pursing their professional licensing.

In 2014, the firm marked its 20th year as KG+D Architects, PC, building upon the well established legacy of more than 70 years of superior services to public and private clients throughout the region.

While we bring our years of knowledge and expertise to every project, KG+D relies on the active participation of owners, boards and committees to ensure that we deliver the best possible project. We believe that a collaborative and transparent relationship with our clients allows us to take a holistic planning approach that blends the testing of good ideas with innovative design.

Through open and interactive collaboration with clients, user groups, consultants and project teams we plan and design sites and buildings that are functional, attractive, cost-effective and sustainable.
