VLK Architects

Richard A. Jaynes



I am very fortunate to be involved in architecture; I have a deep appreciation of the design and construction aspects of the practice and for the knowledge gained in working with our clients toward their goals.

Richard’s continued dedication to VLK has molded the firm into the company it is today. As a Principal, he manages each and every project with a unique and detailed approach.
