SAR+ Picnic
I was attracted to SAR+ because it is a people oriented firm. The care we have for each other seamlessly extends to the care we have for the people we design for.

Stephen Kirmse

Architect | Associate

Stephen Kirmse joined the SAR+ team in 2013. Kirmse returned to Colorado following his pursuit of a master’s degree in Oregon where he had the chance to study under great environmentally-minded design and planning professors.

With several years of design experience in the education and healthcare sectors, Stephen has brought great insights on a mix of building uses to our project teams. In his role at SA+R he has helped provide design leadership on several test fits for developer clients exploring project opportunities, supported complex commercial projects through public review and approval processes, and served as a core design team member for some of the firm’s largest multi-family projects such as the Theo apartment community and the new Broadway Station development.
