Donald Smith
Project Designer


Donald’s incredible designs are proof that modern can be warm, encompassing textures and colors that create a sophisticated and luxurious appearance while also being livable. As a project designer for more than a decade, he is recognized for his ability to develop a strong concept with clear focus, using the form of the space to introduce simplistic elements such as furniture, art, lighting and nature.

Guided by the client, whether on a residential or restaurant project, Donald’s world-class creativity is inspired by trips to places like Bali, Denmark and the Caribbean, as well as his pursuit toward sustainable design. Growing up in Louisville, turned world traveler and competitive swimmer, his work is known for its understated elegance and multifunctional purpose.

Prior to joining Robinson Brown, Donald managed well-known high-end residential and commercial projects at James Alcorn Architects. He has also previously managed government and military design projects at Ed Cass & Associates.

Donald has a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Miami University and a Master of Architecture at Newschool of Architecture and Design.
