A Letter of Gratitude from Richard Skinner, AIA, the Founder of Richard Skinner & Associates known for a legacy of luxury architectural design

The Journey Continues…

With profound gratitude that after 31 wonderful years of practice in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia, I have decided to explore other options life has to offer. Architecture is an exciting profession, more of a lifestyle. It has brought me great satisfaction, and I will miss the creativity and stimulation of working with my professional colleagues in architectural design and construction every day.  I would like to thank my wife and companion, Pattie Houlihan, for her willing ear, loving guidance, and ultimate patience in this long venture together. 

I am incredibly proud of and grateful for the extraordinary clients that have supported and put their trust in us to create enduring designs for custom-designed residences, institutional and educational facilities. As time continues to move along, I plan to enjoy a focus on new experiences and my growing family. My interests are expanding into other dimensions of my life, such as music, drawing, the natural world, and travel. I hope to continue to contribute to Jacksonville’s civic environment as long as I am able as it brings me such joy. Most of all I look forward to taking the time to choose my daily path.

My website and Facebook pages will remain live for now as a special thanks to those who contributed to these projects and the firm’s success. For my clients, colleagues, and friends of whom I have had the great pleasure to work for and with during my career, you’re invited to enjoy a compilation of designs by Richard Skinner & Associates: Legacy of Work.
