Established in 1991, Kari Architect is dedicated to the highest quality of residential design. Clients receive our top priority in response to their personal, aesthetic, and budgetary considerations.  


Ranging in scale from modest remodel to high-end custom home, each project involves the careful consideration of  the surrounding environment, efficient service and production, and the utmost attention to detail and quality assurance from concept to completion.      

The design, consulting, and construction teams are critical to the success of each project, and are selected for their commitment and expertise in their field, which in turn allows for a creative and satisfying experience for the client.


Lori A. Kari AIA, principal, has been involved in the design profession since 1985, becoming a licensed Architect in California in 1993. She gained extensive experience working for Santa Barbara architectural firms over several years prior to establishing her own practice. 

Involved extensively in the community, Lori volunteers on boards and committees for a variety of education and arts-related local organizations.
