Next Wed (Dec. 12th), Owen Kennerly, principal of Kennerly Architecture & Planning, will present the firm's work, past the present.
Performance, Pleasure, and Fit
Our works promote the crafting of experience beyond image as the path to a fine-tuned environment. As such, non-visual aspects of design including thermal performance, movement, acoustics, and texture are as thoroughly considered as the visual. We believe a responsive approach to design- free from stylistic rules and conventional expectations- enables the realization of these goals.
Though most of our work consists of infill projects within San Francisco’s dense fabric, it complements a series of rural projects set in delicate landscapes that are often as highly regulated as the urban ones. What ties the urban and rural work together is the idea of “fit” both as a verb and an adjective: Designs evolve from their settings and clients to embody dynamic solutions to environmental, programmatic, and regulatory challenges.
Owen Kennerly has worked in architecture in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1992. Born and raised in New York City, Kennerly received a BA in Fine Arts from Northwestern University, and a Master of Architecture degree from U.C. Berkeley in 1994. Prior to starting his own firm in 1999, Kennerly was a Senior Associate with Solomon Architecture & Urban Design in San Francisco.
Since 1999, Kennerly Architecture & Planning has grown from a solo practice engaged with small residential projects to a firm of five working with ever larger and complex buildings, sites, and clients. The current work ranges from custom homes to master-planning and ground-up multi-unit and mixed-use buildings.
