About DNK Architects

When DNK Architects was established in Cincinnati in 1986, David Kirk’s goal was to deliver architectural solutions that are functional, beautiful, and that meet all client goals. Today DNK is one of Ohio’s most respected general services architectural firms. DNK provides a full range of architectural design services in multiple public and private sectors.

DNK is client-focused.

We listen, and we work to understand clients’ needs and desires. Our clients are members of the project team; their ideas and opinions are welcome at any time. The DNK team is efficient, responsive, and experienced. We partner with clients as a trusted advisor, guiding clients to the choices that will best accomplish their goals, respect their budgets, and meet their schedules. Not surprisingly, many of DNK’s relationships endure over multiple projects and many years.

Fresh. Smart. Creative. DESIGN! These are the cornerstones of DNK’s approach that drive our success. We provide innovative solutions that are thoughtfully curated and forward-thinking. The quality we offer is a function of our strategic focus, not unlimited budgets, and we are proud of our track record of exceptional value.

Our Architectural Values

At DNK, we believe great design occurs at the intersection of inspiration and reality, that it is creative, practical…and sustainable. Today’s focus on LEED standards illustrates the importance of environmental priorities, but DNK has always emphasized sustainability, seeking the best, safest, most environmentally sound products and processes.

We recognize that our work is not just about how a space looks and functions, but also about how people experience it. A well-designed space can make a visitor feel welcome and comfortable, an employee feel inspired and valued, and a patient feel calm and cared for.

These are the measures of success that have made DNK Architects one of Cincinnati’s and the tri-state region’s leading architectural firms.
