Kieran Wilmes



  • Bachelor of Science in Architecture, University of Maryland

Kieran has focused on educational design for the last two decades, managing and leading design teams on K-12 and collegiate projects throughout the region. Kieran brings his deep experience to all phases of project design and construction, working closely with clients and community groups from the outset to build consensus and establish expectations that inform the design process and ensure aspirational, effective and thoughtful outcomes.  He is passionate about engaging students and teachers in the design process, understanding their unique perspective on learning, and how their experiences and insights can shape environments to help them thrive. This passion carries through to Kieran’s work in teaching classes and guest speaking in both K-12 and Higher Education settings, giving workshops, running outreach programs, and directly mentoring students.

Kieran brings a strong commitment to sustainability and has delivered many LEED-certified projects that successfully embody each client’s unique value system. He is active in A4LE (Association for Learning Environments) and is a Board Member and Past-President of the Chesapeake Bay/Delaware Chapter.
