“I have relied on Jason Kurtz for the last ten years to assist our company with the design and oversight of many of our projects..”
"I have relied on Jason Kurtz for the last ten years to assist our
company with the design and oversight of many of our projects. He has
provided us with everything from basic floor plan changes to the
updating of entire homes. He has great ideas for kitchens and baths
and has created exciting up to the minute family rooms, all while being
sensitive to the structure and project budget.
Jason has designed everything for us from renovations of single
family homes to the more complex demands of multi-family buildings.
Through it all the common thread of Jason's architectural design is
that he is extraordinarily practical in his approach. Whether he is
solving a complex design problem, meeting building code requirements
in difficult structures or just satisfying our own preferences, Jason
always provided excellent advice and skillfully detailed drawings. He
understands that it is necessary to create reasonable code compliant
solutions that are attractive and cost effective. What good is it if
you can't afford to build it? In my experience, Jason stands alone
for that unique skill. I highly recommend him for any type of
architectural work you might have.
We met Jason while developing a forty unit condominium project in an
old mercantile building in Boston's Midtown District. Right away I
recognized his grasp of that old building, where we wanted to take it
and that he clearly understood the onerous high rise building code.
With his help we created outstanding loft style units that met not
only our high expectations but more importantly the demands of the
He is outstanding in terms of providing usable architectural drawings
both quickly and at a reasonable price. He implements field changes
into his drawings immediately.....great service."

“I have worked with KDS on several projects…”
"I have worked with KDS on several projects, both residential and commercial, and they have been a pleasure to work with. Our plans and designs came through in a timely fashion, and at a very good value. KDS worked with my general contracting company throughout the builds, keeping in contact whenever needed. The projects went smoothly and the clients were very happy. That’s all a general contractor can ask for."

As of last night we received our building permit! I am very grateful to Jason Kurtz help, and would highly recommend him for your project."
