Kurt Donnelly AIA

Senior Principal

There is a story behind every place—a story derived from history, culture and experience. As an architect immersed in design, Kurt Donnelly believes these stories contribute character and soul to the built environment. Whether he is working close to home or across the globe, Kurt absorbs and understands the context of a place before he starts thinking inside the walls.

Kurt's respect for the past is balanced by his passion for new ideas. His design leadership frequently takes him to China where he is inspired by the country's rich architectural history and energetic intellect. His 32 years of experience has produced award-winning communities throughout California and many provinces in China.

Kurt is always feeding his appetite for history and life—whether he is urban hiking to experience the world's great cities, rediscovering art and sports treasures at antique fairs, or organizing cross-country Major League Baseball trips with his brothers. Kurt's favorite moments are when he's spending them with his wife and two beautiful daughters.
