Kipnes Architecture + Planning

Kipnis Architecture + Planning has a national reputation for sustainable architectural design that marries beauty with efficiency. KAP has practiced the architectural design philosophy of ‘High Design/Low Carbon™’ long before it was in vogue. The results are high performance, beautiful buildings that respond to a site’s context, integrate in local materials and cultural aspects, and provide meaningful solutions for the challenging projects our clients come to us for.

Visionary People Building the Future

At Kipnis Architecture + Planning, we are guided by the idea that architectural design excellence need not be sacrificed for principles of sustainability. Rather, we believe it expands the possibilities for innovative architectural forms, construction methods and the use of materials. We strive to integrate sustainability, resilience, wellness and social justice into our work. As early signatories to the AIA’s 2030 Commitment and intimately involved with the creation of the AIA’s 2030 Commitment program, we are rigorously working towards having our projects be ‘net zero’ for their energy and carbon use by 2030.
