Founding Principal

More than a career. This is a calling for Ken Newberry, one of Newberry Architecture’s principals.

“What we do affects people’s lives, so we have to hear from them and understand them — their work and family dynamic,” he says.

A good architect can bring a client’s vision to life, better than they ever envisioned. But a greatarchitect can profoundly improve the quality of a client’s life, and in that, contribute to improving the greater world.

That’s Ken Newberry.

His passion and purpose is evident in everything he says and does, from his impressive education to the scope of his work — from small but mighty remodels to multi-million-dollar mansion new builds, and everything in between. He has extensive experience in custom residential, commercial, restaurant and retail architecture; you name it. And his consistent exceptional quality and communication has helped earn the firm its internationally admired reputation.

A University of Houston architecture graduate who also studied at the University of Rome in Italy, Ken is widely recognized for his progressive use of traditional and modern construction materials. He is a licensed architect in Colorado, Maine, Montana, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming.

But beyond his resume, Ken values making extraordinary collaborations with other professionals, from interior designers to real estate agents —and it’s also his highest priority to collaborate closely with clients. That’s the key to excellence: a team commitment to pursuing and creating the highest possible level of design.

Ken’s commitment to improving the lives of others can also be seen in his philanthropy work. He is a founding board member of Starfish Kenya and has also worked with the Texas chapter of Boys to Men, the AIDS Foundation and World AIDS Day. Ken is currently serving on the Board of Justice Forward.
