McLeod Kredell Architects is a studio built around the practice, teaching, and community engagement of architecture. We believe that architecture grows out of its particular place and time–yet at its best it also transcends those limits. In the end, architecture should be inspiring–for the client, the architect, the builder, the passerby.

John McLeod is the founding partner of the practice, and Steve Kredell is a consulting partner, also playing a key role at our allied firm, gbA. John and Steve have been collaborating since graduate architecture school in the mid-90s. Both are licensed Architects and LEED Accredited Professionals. They practiced with firms in New York City, Pittsburgh, Switzerland, and Vermont before forming their collaborative practice. John is an associate professor of architecture at Middlebury College and Steve teaches in Norwich University’s School of Architecture. Both partners team up each year to lead an Island or Mountain Design Assembly with students–intensive design-build projects for rural communities in Maine or Vermont. Combining teaching with practicing, MKA focuses on the search for appropriate local expressions of universal qualities and ideals.
