Meet the Architect

For the Artisan Home Tour of Greater Kansas City, an architect review process helps ensure the homes meet the quality levels. Every builders’ architectural plans were judged individually on their merits by one of Kansas City’s most acclaimed architects, Scott Bickford, R.S. Bickford and Company.

Bickford took into consideration the goals for these unique home entries while holding the plans to the highest-quality standards in nearly 20 categories ranging from exteriors, millwork, windows and doors, roofing, flooring, furnishings and landscaping.

“As an architect, I’ve been involved in homes of every imaginable and maybe even unimaginable size and price,” said Bickford. “Each builder involved is stepping up their game and building something above and beyond what they normally do. The public should expect to see something special at each and every home.”
