People: Keira Ritter

Keira founded keira ritter design company in 2005. After practicing architecture and design at Hacin + Associates in Boston, Massachusetts and DTJ Design in Boulder, Colorado over the course of a decade, Keira was ready to follow her heart and establish a full service, design oriented practice.

Born in Massachusetts and raised in an old New England house that was in perpetual need of repair, Keira declared at the age of ten that she was going to be an architect. She followed that path with dedication and passion, actively engaging in art and the act of making throughout the course of her schooling.

Keira graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with degrees in both Fine Arts and Architecture. While a student at RISD she was the recipient of the American Institute of Architects Scholastic Achievement Award and numerous scholarships.

Keira was exposed to a variety of impactful projects while working in Boston following graduation from RISD, and had a true mentor in her employer David Hacin. It was under his tutelage that Keira recognized her particular affinity for color, texture, composition and form as it applies to multiple project types and understood her intense interest in all facets of the design process, ranging from the development of a building envelope to the selection of finishes and fixtures.

Keira is extremely dedicated to her practice and simply loves to create beautiful space. In addition to her affinity for all things design-related, Keira enjoys riding her bike, trail running, hiking, yoga, making jewelry, cooking, gardening, reading, road trips and soaking up the Colorado sunshine with German Shepherd pup Lars.

Keira is a licensed Architect in the State of Colorado, a National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) certificate holder, a member of the American Institute of Architects, a LEED® Accredited Professional, and a member of the Boulder Green Building Guild. Keira is currently serving a two-year term on the Board of Directors of the American Institute of Architects Colorado North Chapter.
