Equity and Inclusivity

KieranTimberlake is a Just® Organization. We engage in a highly participatory process of education, reflection, critique, and action to guide our firm into the future. You can read about our policies in detail on the ILFI database here.

Lectures and Conferences

We participate in discourse with audiences within and outside of architectural practice at universities, professional chapters, and industry conferences in the United States and abroad.


We have received over 260 design citations in the United States and abroad, including the Center for Architecture and Design Louis I. Kahn Award, the AIA Architecture Firm Award, and the National Design Award from the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. 

2030 Challenge

We believe it is our collective ethical obligation to tackle climate change, social inequity, and ecological fragility on every project. We are signatories to the AIA 2030 Commitment, which seeks to make all buildings carbon neutral by 2030, and a founding signatory of US Architects Declare.

Quality Management

ISO Certification requires a rigorous auditing process and is rare among American architecture firms. It is a standard established to define levels of quality that are recognized and respected internationally. It ensures that planning, reflection, and learning are embedded into our
everyday work.

Research at KieranTimberlake

Each project begins with a question and develops within a culture of inquiry, ensuring that acts of high-performance design are the result of deep investigation. Integral to this is the work of a trans-disciplinary research group dedicated to advancing building design practices.
