is key for the success of all projects.  Our firm’s project approach is based on building open, honest, inquisitive and cooperative partnerships that develop dynamic built environments enhanced by the collective perspectives.  We seek to listen with the intent to understand our client’s facilities’ challenges and future goals in order to collaboratively develop effective design solutions.

KG+D has been in the practice of listening and architecture for 24 years – founded as Kaeyer, Garment + Davidson in 1994, the firm has built upon a well-established legacy of more than 70 years of superior services to public and private clients throughout the region. The knowledge we gain through each project and design process ultimately enhances and progressively informs the processes for each subsequent project. As such, our team possess the technical skills required to complete building condition surveys and infrastructure improvement projects as well as the design expertise required to complete expertly designed, forward-thinking projects.

The firm is led by principals and owners Russell Davidson FAIA, Erik Kaeyer AIA LEED AP and Walter Hauser AIA.  Russ, Erik and Walt provide a diverse and well-balanced collection of skills, professional experience and leadership qualities that ensure a continuity of expertise across all planning and project phases for every type of design challenge.

A team of valued and experienced professionals supports the three principals and is comprised of architects, landscape designers, interior designers, construction inspectors and administrative personnel.  Additionally, KG+D works with a regular group of specialty sub-consultants that complement and function as an extension of the KG+D team. Together, our team can provide any necessary professional services through a highly coordinated team approach that leverages each individuals and specialty’s specific expertise and diversity of talent.

KG+D is located in Mount Kisco, NY. As a team, we leave our homes every day for our office or for a project meeting, a construction site visit, a collaborative design charrette, a building conditions analysis, a board meeting or public presentation with the goal of designing and building the places you leave your homes for every morning – be that a school, office, library, community center, municipal facility or recreational center.

KG+D designs the places you live, learn, work and play.
