Principal Kellogg Concepts

James Kellogg, Principal
Kellogg Concepts

As principal of Kellogg Concepts, I offer a depth of experience on projects of all sizes and complexities, nimble lead times and responsive, personal attention to clients.

I founded the firm in June 2012 after a successful 30-year career at HOK Architects, one of the world’s largest architectural firms, where my most recent position was Senior Vice President and Director of Best Practices. I also have seven years of public service as member of the City of Piedmont Planning Commission and Design Review Board, from 2006 to 2013.

Architectural services provided by Kellogg Concepts include concept design to full-contract services for your residential project and design consultation on commercial-office projects.

Planning services include developing design and presentations strategies to successfully obtain approvals from the Piedmont Planning Commission, as well as providing programming and budgeting options for residential and commercial-office projects.

Design services include design of custom built-in and moveable furniture that integrates with your architectural projects and creation of unique handcrafted hardwood furniture and artwork.
