Kurt M. Oravecz

Co-founder of KD3 Design Studio, Kurt was previously self-employed for a period of 12 years, during which he specialized primarily in the custom design of many single-family residential projects. Prior to that, he was employed by two prominent Central PA architectural firms where he was the lead design architect on projects including a corporate headquarters for a Fortune 500 Company, early concept designs for a Hall of Fame museum, and an environmental education center, well ahead of the current sustainable design movement.

Bringing artistic creativity to projects of all types and sizes, Kurt is appreciated by clients for his ability to listen in order to fully understand their wants and needs so that he can design responsively. KD3’s designs of multi-family apartments and condos are enhanced by Kurt’s years of expertise in the design of custom homes.  He also brought his creative sensibilities to the design of a variety of other renovation and new construction projects including dentist offices, restaurants, retail projects, fire houses and other municipal projects, office buildings and fit outs, a branch bank, a library and other institutional projects.

Kurt received his Bachelor of Science with a Major in Architecture in 1982 from Penn State University. His studies abroad included classes at the Technische College Hochschule in Darmstadt, Germany and architectural tours through many European Countries.

Kurt is a licensed Architect in Pennsylvania and Maryland.
