As the inaugural Firm-to-Studio donor, K. Norman Berry Associates Architects (KNBA) continues its abiding support of the UK College of Design with a $50,000 gift to sponsor both an undergraduate and graduate studio in the new building. KNBA also serves as the Architect of Record on this project.
The firm was founded by partner emeritus Norman Berry in April 1971 and has since grown to a dedicated and collaborative team of 21 people, providing talent and enthusiasm directed towards a wide range of clients and projects. “In our role as team leaders for the University and the College, we want to show, by action, our commitment to design education, which provides a vital role in the enhancement of our cultural heritage in the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” said Managing Principal Bob Haffermann, an alumnus of the College.
KNBA’s broad portfolio of work includes development and preservation of the cultural heritage of our community. Whether it is work on many of the historic buildings of West Main Street in Louisville, the Speed Art Museum, the Historic Fayette County Courthouse (pictured on the front), or the Kentucky Capitol in Frankfort, KNBA’s work is linked to many of the Commonwealth’s cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, and economic legacies – all the things that literally makes KNBA the company it is today.
