Keefe pairs a highly detailed sense of aesthetics with reverence for clarity and function. A multifaceted designer with 20+ years of collective experience in architecture, graphic design and photography, Keefe nimbly translates ideas across mediums to ensure that they are executed with high-level efficiency, craftsmanship and fidelity.
In 1995, Keefe earned a B.Arch from Mississippi State University with a Minor in Photography. He went on to briefly pursue an MFA in Photography at Rochester Institute of Technology before leaving it to circle back to architecture.
As an architect, Keefe cut his teeth on large-scale public projects—museums, international airports, educational master plans—before branching into design-build, where he developed an understanding of crews, sequence, quality and detail. Keefe continues to practice photography and graphic design alongside his work in architecture.
