A Message from President & CEO Ken Lowney

We Champion Innovative Solutions

Founded in 2003, Lowney Architecture is a multidisciplinary practice with teams in California and Hawaii, providing architectural, interior, and landscape architectural design services. We are dedicated to addressing the critical conditions that impact our communities through industry thought-leadership and a research-based approach to our project delivery.

We believe modular construction can increase healthy, affordable development by saving significant time and resources, but we’ve witnessed firsthand the unique and often unexpected challenges this innovative delivery method can present.

Starting with the completion of our award-winning, LEED-NC Platinum Certified ‘SmartSpace Harriet’ housing project in 2013, through our current portfolio of over 60 active modular projects and 5,300 modular units, we are shaping the future of innovative design and construction.

Our team has a proven track record of mitigating obstacles such as:

  • agency inexperience
  • manufacturing limitations
  • technical compliance concerns
  • state and local permitting
  • public skepticism
  • labor issues
