We started KEX because we're passionate about designing and building. We also saw a need for affordable, sustainable and quality design- which we think has been missing in the market.

We're a full-service, privately held commercial and residential renovation and development company — developing projects through architectural planning, construction, and design. 

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 on 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.
