Windom Kimsey


Windom Kimsey Windom joined Tate Snyder Architects in 1991 and became President and CEO of Tate Snyder Kimsey Architects in 2008.

Windom developed a reputation for innovative design early in his career through a series of award-winning projects and buildings that were as programmatically and technically innovative as they were cost and resource conscious. His career has since been devoted to public projects, especially the design of civic, public safety and educational facilities for which he has received numerous accolades and awards.

Windom received the AIA Western Mountain Region Silver Medal in 2009 in recognition of his contribution to the industry, profession and communities across multiple geographies. That was just two years after receiving the AIA Nevada Silver Medal. In 2004, he was inducted into the AIA's College of Fellows and in 2020 = the 60th anniversary of the formation of the company which now proudly bears his name - Windom led TSK to the most prestigious award for an architecture firm in the state, the AIA Nevada Firm of the Year Award.

While he works tirelessly to enhance the quality and depth of TSK's portfolio, Windom's body of work is now an important repository of civic and educational architecture throughout the West Coast. His work crosses many stylistic approaches and is connected by an expectation that a public building should achieve a certain pride in the idea of civic architecture.

Alongside his architectural practice, Windom guest lecturers at AIA events both nationally and internationally, and sits on numerous design committees and boards.
