Who We Are

We pursue architecture to give form to your values. We use design to build beautiful things.

Forrest Kirkpatrick founded Fork Design in 2011. With a degree in architecture, mastery of both architectural and building computer models, and experience in carpentry and welding, he’s the heart of every project at Fork Design.

Our name comes from his name: We just removed unnecessary letters. Our studio works the same way, cutting out the extras and delivering the parts that give a project the most value. Forrest caters the studio’s team size to the needs of each project, leveraging his long list of contractor, fabricator and architect contacts.

Our Philosophy

We believe in contributing to a creative and egalitarian community and showing respect for all those involved in our work. We believe that people shouldn’t be detached from the environment around them, and that means using a design process that emphasizes truly understanding the project through hands on work. We work with clients and partners who share these values and look for creative, innovative solutions.
