I hail from the sunny Clearwater area and proudly graduated from the "Masters of Architectural Shenanigans" program at the University of South Florida. Mine and my wife's household resembles a mini zoo, complete with a cast of characters including multiple cats with superiority complexes, two dogs with a knack for mischief, a flock of chickens, and Opie, the horse who thinks he's a lapdog in training. For over two decades, I've been part of the Klar and Klar family, where I've not only mastered the art of designing buildings but also honed my skills in dodging coffee spills during brainstorming sessions. The Klars, my mentors, have graciously entrusted me and my partner-in-crime Kristina with the monumental task of carrying on their legacy. We're grateful for the chance and eagerly embrace the adventures ahead in the dynamic world of architecture.

Kristina Novisk, NCARB
owner/Principal

My passion for architecture and design stems from a childhood surrounded by creativity; my father, a structural engineer, and my mother, an artist, shaped my appreciation for both technical precision and artistic expression. Based in Safety Harbor, my husband and I recently renovated a property near my childhood home, blending my tropical modern style with eclectic vibrant tribal prints. Outside of design, I balance parenthood with collaborative work alongside my architect spouse. Having recently taken over the firm, I am eagerly anticipating the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, as we strive to create spaces that seamlessly merge functionality and creativity. I am truly fortunate to love what I do, and I look forward to continuing this journey of creating architectural art.

Rooted in collaboration, our team embodies a shared commitment to sustainable design, blending diverse expertise and unwavering passion their craft.
