During their time in the Architecture Program at the University of Cincinnati, the K4 Principals often discussed that the role of the Architect had changed over time. The concept of the Architect as the “Master Builder” had been lost. They felt strongly that the Architect creating the vision should also play a central role in making the vision a reality. Their vision was to create a firm that would be held accountable for the entire design and development of the project from initial inception of the idea to turning over a set of keys to the Owner at the completion of the project. The timeline to the left illustrates the growth of this ideology since 1990. In response to the changing needs of our clients, K4 has evolved into a firm providing Architecture, Interior Design, Graphic Design & Construction Services, concentrating our efforts in the financial, credit union, education, health care and retail industries.
