Kraus, Greg

Greg Kraus

Design Director

With an Architecture degree from the University of Minnesota, Greg’s work is strongly influenced by a number of critical design approaches. The notion of moving through space, shaping and manipulating to heighten the experience as well as replicating rhythm and pattern in design elements and crafting a structure to fit its site and context are all core elements that Greg considers on every project. During his career in the design-build industry he’s honed his skills to create efficiencies and streamlined communication. He brings great joy to his work with clients and is constantly seeking most appropriate ways to guide each one through their unique process in a clear and meaningful way.
