Kennedy & Violich Architecture (KVA) is an interdisciplinary design practice that works at the intersection of architecture, sustainable building technologies and emerging public needs and lifestyles. Central to the work of KVA is the idea that the necessary infrastructure of buildings and cities can be transformed by design to enhance the experiences and activities of daily life. KVA offers clients professional services in urban design and architecture, construction documentation and administration, as well as creative programming and strategic planning for technology integration. KVA is structured as an open studio, which allows both Principals to be personally involved in the design of our projects in all phases of work. Our studio, located in the former Blue Bird bottling plant in Boston’s South End, was selected in 2009 by International Design (ID) Magazine as one of the top 40 creative offices worldwide. KVA strives to create innovative and enduring architecture that is of its time, engaging both new and traditional architectural materials with contemporary design tools and fabrication techniques.
