About KEPHART Architects

A Top Denver-based Residential Architecture and Land Planning Design Firm

Since 1974, the KEPHART team has been dedicated to the idea that EVERYONE deserves a well-designed place to live. For us, this means creating innovative homes and communities regardless of the project type or how challenged the budget might be. We see quality architectural design being something for EVERYONE, not just the wealthy (although we would design a home for Peyton Manning in a “hurry, hurry” if he called). We believe that home is where the heart is, which is why at, KEPHART, we specialize in residential design and planning. And we are happy to report that our clients and peers think we are pretty good at it, making us one of the top architecture firms in Denver and the nation.

Our recent awards and honors include:

  • The Westerly on Lincoln for UDR Inc. named 2013 Community of the Year by the NAHB Multifamily Housing Council
  • KEPHART was named 2012 Architect of the Year by Builder and Developer magazine
  • The firm has won more than 40 local and national design awards in the past six years
  • KEPHART has presented at 45 national speaking engagements and 30+ articles have been published about the firm in the past four years

Having designed more than 400,000 homes, from apartment buildings to single family homes to urban infill designs, when you work with KEPHART you are working with the best. We invest heavily in architecture and design technology and training that is tailored to our expertise in housing.

In addition to being great architectural designers and land planners, the KEPHART team is dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve. From rebuilding homes in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, to lifting a hammer for Habitat for Humanity, you will see the KEPHART team in action throughout the community making a difference.

People sometimes ask what the key to our longevity as a successful architecture firm has been. (Beer on Fridays! Just kidding, but it does help.) It is having great clients that trust and believe in us. It is solving tough problems while saving money for our development partners. It is creating innovative, architectural design solutions. It is having FUN and loving what we do!

We are KEPHART and we are proud to be over 40. We are not over the hill, we are just hitting our stride. We look forward to being 50, and can’t wait to see what 100 will bring. Join us, and experience the KEPHART difference.
