About KP Architecture

KPA Logo-transparent

KP Architecture was founded by Kevin Paver in the wake of a long career doing architectural drafting and home design for high-end custom builders in the Southwest Florida region. The decision to branch out came from a strong desire to work directly with clients in a more personalized way, providing his architectural skills and engineering background to bring ideas into a realized project.
The KPA team is grounded in the desire to provide a personalized custom home design experience to meet individual lifestyle needs. We bring ideas into reality by combining personalization and state-of-the-art technology to provide a unique experience that allows you to lay eyes on your future home before a contractor even begins work.
While many firms are severely backed up due to the housing boom, KPA boasts a team of professionals that are outpacing the competition and bringing plans to the permit phase in record times.

About Owner and Founder Kevin Paver

A Chicago Native, Kevin learned architectural drafting and AutoCAD as an elective in high school before pursuing an education as a nuclear engineer for the U.S. Navy. After completing his tour, Kevin re-located to Southwest Florida where he began working as an architectural drafter for prominent builders in the area.
Since that time Kevin has advanced to designing projects on his own for more than 10 years, during which time he studied under top architects in the business and was accepted into the American Institute of Building Design’s Certified Professional Building Designer program while working full time as a custom home designer.
With the blessing of his mentors, he branched off on his own in a freelance capacity at the start of the pandemic in 2020, and by the end of the year, formed KP Architecture in his own right. To date, Kevin has designed hundreds of high-end residences and developed numerous re-models for homeowners across southwest Florida.
When not designing homes, he enjoys spending time at the dragstrip with his son, racing his Fox-body Mustang, or in the garage tinkering with his latest project vehicle.
