Klar and Klar Architects, a Tampa Bay-based architecture and interior design firm, has named Tim Knowles a partner. A long-time architect with the firm, Knowles has managed residential and commercial projects for Klar and Klar since 2004.
Knowles is a Master of Architecture recipient from the University of South Florida and has won many awards for his work, including the Horizon Award for the 2008 Fire Station 65 in Palm Harbor, FL.
“Tim is a remarkable architect with exceptional skills in presentation rendering, 3D computer-based modeling and construction administration,” says Steve Klar, Co-Principal of Klar and Klar Architects. “We were pleased to make him a partner in our firm and continue his momentum with us.”
In his role as partner, he will continue to focus on heading the next phase of the Ruth Eckerd Hall project. Klar and Klar’s vision for the project focuses on bringing a modern look to the performing arts venue and will include an almost 10,000 square foot expansion of the West Lobby.
“Our vision was to create a space that is true to Ruth Eckerd Hall’s mission of changing lives through performance,” Knowles said. “The space needs to inspire patronage in the extraordinary arts and educational programs offered which are so vital to our local community’s tourism trade and economy.”
