Blending a conservator’s skills with an architect’s passion to revitalize existing buildings

Historic Preservation Planning

From historical research, condition assessments and preservation recommendations, KCA is uniquely qualified to provide all of the architectural services required to produce planning documents such as Historic Preservation Plans and Feasibility Studies.

Restoration & Adaptive Reuse

KCA works exclusively on existing buildings. This is based on Kate’s belief that existing buildings are less damaging to the environment and contribute to a sense of community. Also because this is what inspires her creativity.

Residential Architecture

Understanding that every person interacts differently with their home, KCA uses design to specially adapt a building to each client.
