Jeff Kovel, Brent Grubb. Skylab Architecture

Skylab Architecture was established two decades ago in 1999, in Portland, Oregon, USA, by Jeff Kovel and Brent Grubb. Skylab has grown to 27 employees. Both principals migrated to Portland after architecture school. Grubb spent a decade working for Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and San Francisco's Aidlin Darling Design after earning a degree from Ball State University in Indiana. Kovel, after completing his B.Arch. at Cornell University, landed a gig with a Portland-based firm called Architropolis, doing fast-paced projects for retailers and rock stars, most notably a Miami residence for musician Lenny Kravitz. He admired how Architropolis was willing to take on just about any project, of any scope or length.

The firm began developing a repeatable prefab module in 2008, during the Great Recession. From, its Hoke Residence, Skylab firm has gathered momentum with its innovative modular work and wide-ranging commissions, including hospitality work for the W Seattle hotel and the Summit Sky Lodge, an upcoming prefab ski resort in Utah or the just-completed offices of the Columbia Boulevard Wastewater Treatment Plant (CBWTP) in north Portland.
