Studio K2 Architecture (SK2) has attained several certifications from the city and county of Denver’s Division of Small Business Opportunity (DSBO). Those certifications include women business enterprise (WBE), along with small and disadvantaged business certifications (SBE/DBE), all of which are included under the Colorado Unified Certificationprogram.
Geneva Kowalski, NCARB, who originally joined the firm in 2012, became principal and majority shareholder earlier this year as SK2’s founder Kevin Koernig, AIA, endeavored on a firm transition plan. Koernig remains at SK2 as principal and partner, supporting Kowalski in her efforts to grow the firm.
“We’re thrilled to receive our WBE certification from the city and county of Denver,” said Kowalski. “The firm’s experience working on Denver landmark projects such as The Tattered Cover at Lowenstein Theater and the Colorado Saddlery Building, along with Kevin’s history on public projects such as the Wellington Webb city office building, demonstrates the firm’s deep commitment to seeing Denver flourish,” she added. Kowalski also serves on the city’s Public Art Committee and as executive chair for the local non-profit, Women in Design Denver.
Established in 2009, Studio K2 Architecture is a Denver-based architectural design studio specializing in historic preservation and adaptive reuse, restaurant/hospitality, cannabis, industrial/manufacturing, and single- and multifamily living.
