"Shaw Design Associates, P.A. is a great architect. I've worked with Keith multiple times over the years and would highly recommend them."

Mark J. (Builder), August 2018

"I have known Keith Shaw for over 25 years as a personal friend and now as our architect for a mountain cottage in Colorado. He has a customer-centric approach and is very personable. He is creative and has vision. I fully endorse him and his firm!"

Marta L. (Client), December 2018

"A wonderful architect! He did a great job on my house and then on the addition!"

Michelle C. (Client), December 2018

"We wanted to thank you for the fine job you did with the design of our new home in Governors Club.  Your excellent ideas and concepts overcame a number of key obstacles including a very small lot and opinionated clients who wanted certain room sizes, lake views, etc.  The resulting design met all of our key objectives and you sold us on some ideas that we had not thought about.  The Great Room with the high ceilings and the great lake views from several key rooms are major pluses.  We have had a number of compliments from neighbors and others on the great design.”"

Jim and Linda H. (Clients)

“...however, the best gift is your design of our new home.  We couldn’t be happier.  As we partied over the holidays and met different people, a standard question – so where do you live?  When we would explain which house was ours the standard reply was – ‘Oh, I love that house! It’s so warm and inviting’...just the look we wanted.”

Judy and Dick B. (Clients)

“...Shaw Design Associates seems to come out on top in our minds. Previous homeowners that we’ve worked with, and who have worked with Keith, rave about how happy they are with the design, and at how much he seemed to listen to their requests throughout the process.”

Anonymous Builder to Client

“You have made it painless for our job superintendent to build a Shaw Design Home by providing plans that are thorough and comprehensive.  He has all the information in front of him from the beginning of the project and doesn’t have to waste time requesting and waiting for details.   Your blueprints, drawings and specifications are clear and consistent, thus there are no questions as to the architect’s intent.  The above attributes not only help in the construction phase but also aid in the bidding and pricing stages.  Our mutual clients benefit by the cooperative atmosphere that your office exudes, we find it comfortable to work with your team at all stages of the design / build.  Finally, we appreciate your availability and the frequency that you attend job meetings and site visits.”

Bernard Malloy, Brightleaf Development Company (Builder)

“Keith’s designs seem to ‘beckon’ the viewer to look further, to keep exploring...(he) has taken the hopes and ideas of his clients and morphed them into the home of their dreams.  There are many fine architects out there who could design a suitable home, but Keith will create a masterpiece that truly reflects who you are!”

Jim and Nancy P. (Clients)

“I counted on Keith to creatively and practically put my ideas into design; he did that.  When he felt some idea wouldn't work, he was quick to offer an alternative and explain why.  He guided with a firm but velvet glove... and with humor. I have and will continue to recommend Keith to all I meet.  Keith really designs custom; no one house looks like another.”
