Building for the Future

Krueck Sexton Partners: New name. New look. Continued commitment.

The transformation of Krueck + Sexton Architects begins today, building upon our 40-year design legacy to create an inclusive future. Our new name — Krueck Sexton Partners — reflects this change.

Our new look represents our vision for a better experience for our employees and clients. Our new brand establishes who we have become and all we have to offer.

Our commitment continues with five newly appointed partners — Sara Lundgren, Don Semple, Yugene Cha, Juan Villafañe, and Jamie Cook — all long-term colleagues, who share our vision of sustainable growth and design impact.

As we create our future together —we’re thrilled to introduce Krueck Sexton Partners to all of you through video.
