Mark Beardemphl, AIA

Visionary. Genuine. A Consensus Builder. Compassionate. Affirming.

These traits not only make KMB’s Principal Mark Beardemphl an outstanding firm leader, but also a great architect. His easy smile and energy, partnered with a client-centered approach, results in projects that are both enjoyable and successful.

Growing up one of nine children, Mark learned at an early age how to be a common goal contributor where results are shared equitably.  He understands that like a family, each member of a project team is a critical contributor.  By promoting a firm culture and assembling project teams, focused on listening and affirmation, powerful results emerge.  KMB’s project success is a reflection of Mark’s leadership style and the firms culture.   The rewards of architecture for Mark are many; but, at the top of his list is, making a difference in  people’s lives.  He purports that even the simplest of projects have the potential to be transformative for both those that create – and use – the projects entrusted to KMB’s care.  Since KMB’s founding, Mark has combined his talents in architecture, management and communication, to support creation of unique and inspirational solutions for complex projects.  It is not unusual for KMB to solve a problem in a way that has never been done before.  Mark is quick to share that the greatest reward is always client satisfaction.

Outside of architecture, Mark recharges his spirit plying the waters of the Puget Sound in search of the elusive Chinook salmon and traversing the deepest forests for northwest elk.  Mark’s passion for architecture is only exceeded by his love for his family and investment in the lives of his three emerging children.
