Kyle Kernozek


Associate Principal

"I believe there is an intangible and real connection between people and their built environment. All of us are growing, learning, living—all while affecting and being affected by the environment around us. For me, Human be Design starts with this concept—to create a place for us to be our best."

After years working as an electrical contractor, a co-worker suggested Kyle attend the night architectural program at Drexel University. The program sparked in him a passion for creating engaging, sustainable architecture that has since fueled years of investigation and collaboration to design, renovate and transform buildings with memorable environments for clients, users, and their communities. Kyle’s experience on both side of project—from contractor to designer—gives him a unique perspective to engage with colleagues, junior contractors, and clients. It enables him to strengthen communication and collaboration in building a more sustainable future.
