Howard Hawkes

Howard’s passion for design and architecture began in childhood through his father’s real estate business, which included renovating and restoring Victorian homes. He not only learned the trade of construction and detailed finish work, but also fine-tuned his eye for design and composition of space and scale.

As part of his Bachelor of Science degree in Urban and Regional planning at the University of Southern California, Howard spent a semester studying the history and architecture of Los Angeles, which exposed him to the breadth of architectural styles across the LA basin. During his tenure at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority, he furthered his appreciation of significant architecture through his involvement in projects that included the preservation of historic buildings.

Kevin Kemper

Raised in Hawaii, Kevin’s exposure and early interest in design and architecture was greatly influenced by the traditional Hawaiian style of indoor-outdoor living. His familial roots in architecture extend far beyond the Aloha State, however. Kevin’s great grandfather, Edward C. Kemper, devoted nearly 35 years of his life to the American Institute of Architects (A.I.A.) as executive director from 1914 to 1948. In fact, each year the AIA presents the Edward C. Kemper Award to an architect member who has contributed significantly to the profession through service to the A.I.A.

After earning his degree in Television and Film Production from the University of Southern California, Kevin worked in the entertainment industry for talent agents and production companies. When he and his partner Howard moved to Santa Barbara, he became involved with Howard’s family business of renovating Victorian houses. This is where Kevin’s passion for renovation and architecture took flight.

      Houzz Tour: A Palm Springs Midcentury Home With Central American Flair

      New York couple Kermit E. Ferrer and John A. Criscuolo were excited to bring their 1958 William Krisel-designed vacation home in Palm Springs, California, back to its midcentury roots while also infusing it with the charms of their other favorite vacation destination: Guatemala. Criscuolo, with family ties to the Central American country, and his partner tasked the designers at H3K Design to incorporate the colors, textures and spirit of Guatemala within the midcentury lines of this classic Palm Springs home.
