Founding partner and lead designer of SkB Architects, Kyle Gaffney is known for his steadfast commitment to creating buildings and spaces that uphold the human experience above all else. Driven by a belief that architecture can positively influence the way people live and work, Kyle strives to create designs informed by a unique sense of place. For him, design should go above and beyond the necessities, yielding experiences that improve quality of life.
