Our Team

Working Together To Bring Your Vision to Life


Architecture is a collaborative profession.

 

That’s why at Kaas Wilson Architects we take a team approach to architectural design. Working as a team helps us better understand and design specialized environments for work, home, and health. Even our casual, studio-like office environment is designed to facilitate better teamwork and a stronger focus on our projects.

 

Our team is exceptional in its ability to create positive solutions to complex buildings and interiors. We thrive in collaboration, partnering with clients and general contractors to form a cohesive team that generates unmatched success.

 

This approach has produced award-winning projects in senior living architecture, market rate rental architecture, affordable housing architecture, historic building restoration, and rehabilitation.
