Kevin Guarnotta, Principal & Owner

It’s Kevin’s belief that no two spaces or clients are ever the same. Every finished project is one that could only have been imagined and built because of the parties involved, a client’s needs and tastes, the environmental elements, such as the land and light, and of course, time and budget. Kevin founded Guarnotta Design + Build because he appreciates the individual client-architect relationship possible in a small design firm. Prior to founding Guarnotta Design + Build, Kevin worked at Robert Luchetti Associates in Somerville, Massachusetts.

Outside of the office, Kevin collects and restores Volkswagen buses, hand-makes wooden toys for his son, and has recently embarked on bee keeping. Kevin is a licensed Architect, with a Master of Architecture from Rice University, and a B.S. in Architecture from Catholic University of America. He is also a licensed Real Estate Agent and General Contractor.

Lou Simmons, Designer

Lou joined Guarnotta Design + Build in 2012, after moving to Boston from Dallas, Texas. He brings over eight years experience working with local craftsmen and for Dallas architects who focused on modern residential design. These influences, and others, have given Lou an approach to architecture that is understated and functional, with an appreciation for the details.
