Ken Rich

Ken Rich’s career in architecture spans over twenty years in commercial and residential architecture. He spent four years learning craftsmanship from some of the most respected commercial firms in the southeast. The most vivid lesson of those years, however, was that no commercial building could ever move him in the way residential architecture did. For that reason, Rich became a partner in what is now one of the country’s largest residential and portfolio design firms -- Atlanta’s Design Traditions.

While at Design Traditions, Rich held primary responsibility for the business itself, including design supervision. He was instrumental in developing new portfolio marketing channels through publishing relationships with major industry publications such as Southern Living, Home, and Colonial Home magazines. He also directed Design Traditions’ launch of home designs and licensed products created in partnership with the nationally respected artist Bob Timberlake.

Rich co-founded Kenward Architectural Studio in 1999 specifically to get back to the hand-on residential design work he loves. “Hands-on” describes the firm’s approach perfectly. Kenward is committed to offering higher levels of service to fewer clients.
