KGD Architecture work to make Washington DC a more environmentally friendly place 

KGD is an Architectural, Interiors, and Planning firm based in the United States, in the Washington, DC metropolitan area that provides design services both nationally and internationally. Their integrated, creative process provides their clients with high quality, goal driven design which serves to enhance their businesses and culture. KGD's commitment to quality has resulted in numerous design awards in recognition of design excellence and environmental stewardship. Their experience includes: corporate and commercial office, retail, mixed-use, multi-family residential, institutional, and sustainable design projects.

It is their belief that good design brings real value to any project. Appropriately tailored solutions result in successful spaces. A successful space is one that visually communicates the firm's values, history and culture while enhancing the performance, purpose and function of the organisation. Design should positively influence productivity, effectiveness and the overall sense of well-being.

The built environment must meet the standards set forth today and remain an asset throughout its occupancy. Sustainability in its purest sense is about creating a designed environment that will stand up to the test of time, both functionally and aesthetically. In regards to "green" design, they are adept at determining the most appropriate response for each client in order to meet their goals and budget.

KGD does not have a singular design aesthetic. Design is not a style. Design is a process by which they discover who their clients are and how to convey that message, culture and image through the built environment. A matrix may tell them size, office standards and functions, but the process and their abilities will create a space or building that reflects the Client's identity.

The firm are continually evolving innovative ways to integrate time-proven design methodologies with up-to-date technologies. Their comprehensive approach to project design allows for a client's vision to be fully realised.
