We are a small design and construction company, providing inspired design and quality craftsmanship on every project, large or small. To us sustainability has always been a given, not an afterthought and informs everything we do.


von Kurt/Lipsman is capable of handling all details from design concept through project realization.


In recent years we’ve recognized a growing need amongst our clients for consultation services due to the overwhelming and confusing nature of design and construction projects. By using our professional expertise, and years of job experience, we can help guide you in making good decisions for your specific needs.
