RKD Architects, Inc. specializes in resort and mountain architecture. Our primary goal is the creation of excellent design. We are a small firm, which allows our principal architects to be very hands-on with each project. We prefer to be passionate about a few special projects. Each RKD project is an integration of context, environment, design skills and individual clients’ tastes to create unique, site-specific architecture.
The company was established in Vail, Colorado in 1989 by Sally Rich Brainerd, AIA and Jack Krusen Snow, AIA. Since that time, RKD has designed numerous residences and commercial projects throughout the mountain west and from coast to coast.
RKD has been featured in numerous national and international publications including: Architectural Digest, Luxury Living, The Wall Street Journal, Mountain Living, The New York Times, Western Art and Architecture, Colorado Homes & Lifestyles and LUXE.
