We started KEX because we're passionate about designing and building homes. We also saw a need for affordable, sustainable and quality design- which we think has been missing in the market. We always use reclaimed or sustainable wood and work with leading sustainable suppliers for other sourcing materials. 

We are a full service firm, working with clients through architectural planning, construction, and design. From New Orleans to Brooklyn, we design + build sustainable, comfortable and beautiful homes for families of all shapes and sizes. 


KV Harper
Owner & 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 on Apartment Therapy, Brownstoner, Food52,  AphroChic and several other design publications. 

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

Erix Peres
Build Lead

Erix is a master carpenter and all around expert in construction. He's the perfect leader for our small construction team- easy going, perfectionist and funny (sometimes). 

When he's not building houses, Erix can be found dancing salsa or spending time with his young daughter.
