KV Harper
Founder & Principal, Design

KV started designing houses several years ago. She began her design career first doing set designs before moving into home design. She's designed projects in Amsterdam, Brooklyn and New Orleans. Her work has been featured in Apartment Therapy, Brownstoner, Food52,  AphroChic and several other design publications. 

When she's not designing, KV enjoys practicing photography and traveling.

Lisa Johnson
Head of Operations

Lisa, though trained as a mathematician and economist. Her analytical skills lend themselves well to ensuring productivity and efficiency on each Kex project.  


Fun fact, Lisa actually appeared on an HGTV show — which we're sure was a sign of her one day working in home design and development. When she is not crunching numbers and keeping our projects on track, Lisa can often be found at a gallery or a museum in a beautiful city.

Annie P. Labruzzo, AIA NCARB
Senior Architect

Annie is a licensed architect with New Orleans roots and more than ten years of experience in commercial and residential design. An attentive listener with a penchant for problem-solving and enthusiasm for detail, her design approach prioritizes clear communication between the client and design build team to translate conceptual ideas into tangible realities.

Never quite tiring of the three-dimensional creative process, Annie’s other passion lies in clothing design and construction. Chances are there is more than a mild resemblance between her and the costumed reveler passing by.
