David Kubik joined BKSk in 2003 and was named partner in 2018. He plays a strong role in the design of both institutional and development projects and pays careful attention to details in both custom interior work and base building new construction. David is experienced at coordinating large consultant teams on complex projects. He is currently the Partner-In-Charge of two new high-end multifamily residential buildings: The Keller and 111 Charles Street, both in the West Village and the recently completed 601 Washington Street. He also recently led the design of two commercial development projects in the Gansevoort Market Historic District: Gansevoort Row Development and 405 West 13th Street. 


David holds both a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture from the University of Maryland. He has received an Award for Excellence in Design and Fellowships at both the Graduate and Baccalaureate levels, as well as a Thesis Citation. David taught design studio as an adjunct lecturer in the Architectural Technology program at the City University of New York. 



BKSK secured a complex approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission for the block-long redevelopment of a collection tattered low-rise commercial buildings near the High Line in Gansevoort Market Historic District. Careful historic research and analysis of the existing buildings, particularly the history of uses and former configurations, enabled a strong rationale for taller building heights and the demolition of some existing fabric on portions of the block. An important part of the Landmarks approval process, and something that BKSK takes great pride in doing, is presenting to preservation groups, the local community board, and select government officials. In this case the presentation made a successful argument for the development along the street and the properties are currently in various stages of completion, with an impressive roster of luxury retailers, and tenants including Hermes, Match Group, Inc., and the reopened Pastis.
