Skinner Design Associates is an architectural and design firm committed to creating innovative yet functional structures for a variety of clients. Originally established as Skinner-Groves, Ltd. in 1984, a 2006 restructuring gave us our new name as well as a new mission: to be leaders in the development of our region through close collaboration with our clients, participation in new energy initiatives, and ties with the next generation of architects and designers. This mission, along with over 25 years experience and a diverse portfolio of award-winning projects, means our team has the desire and talent to design structures that will meet the needs of each client for years to come.
Our professional personnel are LEED accredited and hold memberships in the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Kentucky Society of Architects (AIA Kentucky), and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB). We hold license to practice in the Commonwealth of Kentucky as well as various other states. Through these direct licensures and a distinguished network of affiliates, we are able to work regionally, nationally, and internationally on projects of any size.
In our collaboration with the University of Kentucky College of Design on the Henderson Project, we are excited to have brought new minds and perspectives to the development of our community. We hope to continue such projects and, taking what we have learned from this unique exchange and others like it, promise to provide our clients with the very best and latest ideas in environmentally responsible and cost-effective design.
