Commonwealth Architects
“Design success is measured by how the architecture enhances people’s lives.”

Kenneth Pope, AIA

Principal / Architect

Ken is passionate about architecture – not merely construction components, but the personal relationships forged during the design. A diverse career has allowed the opportunity to work with a full spectrum of users, builders, and owners. These experiences have provided the background to confidently push the boundaries of what and how we build. Embracing a design philosophy that is rooted in utilizing standard building techniques to create extraordinary places at affordable costs. Ken feels communication is the basis of all successful designs and that the most important facet of communication is listening. Through attentive listening, we deliver award-winning designs for a wide range of building types.
