I-Kanda Architects is an award-winning architectural design practice founded by Isamu & Marley Kanda, following graduation from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Since its inception, the Boston based firm’s work has appeared on the covers of Boston Home Magazine and Boston Globe Magazine. The firm has been awarded the 2018 Best of Boston Home Award for Urban Architect and the 2017 Small Firms Design Award by the Boston chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
The firm approaches each project as a new array of needs and desires out of which to conceive uniquely enhanced environments. Their aim is to turn constraints into possibilities - to work with clients, builders and contexts to realize ideas far beyond anyone’s initial hopes. The firm creates buildings and spaces that are modern, yet enduring – equal parts purpose and sculpture; broadly ranging from lofty barn conversions to Back Bay penthouses, boutique storefronts to mountain-side cabins.
I-Kanda Architects offers services covering the entire design process, beginning with conceptual sketches and carrying through to completion of construction and occupancy.
