Firm Profile


Founding Principals, Kevin Godshall and Damon Royal Kane (1958-2013), started our firm in 2004 with the belief that offering creative, technically rigorous, sustainable, and cost-effective design solutions would build professional relationships with clients. With the addition of P. Michael O‚ÄôRourke as a Principal in 2011, GKO Architects continues to operate with this same philosophy.

In order to produce meaningful and substantive design solutions for our clients, the Principals believe that collaboration with staff, engineers, and other design professionals, builders, and most importantly, our clients, is the best way to achieve successful results. This integrated approach makes the design process more interesting and professionally satisfying: effective collaboration can ensure that true value is returned for every construction dollar invested.

We put the same level of care into building our team as we do with the structures and spaces we design. The result is a diverse group that achieves a balance between creativity and technical proficiency. GKO Architects is grateful for the professional relationships this seasoned team cultivates with our clients every day.
