Internationally recognized and highly design driven, PKDG relies on a conscientious architectural and design approach as the foundation for each Phil Kean Design Group project.
Beginning with a worldview of architecture that incorporates design for specific locations and topography, each PKDG design is one-of-a-kind and customized to satisfy the distinctive requirements and unique lifestyle of each client. Led by the design talents of Principal Phil Kean, AIA, PKDG home designs reflect Phil’s signature approach to integrating natural elements and the surrounding environment, creating seamless transitions of indoor and outdoor living spaces that are a PKDG hallmark.
Building in the Central Florida area and its beaches, PKDG limits its building area and number of projects to ensure superior quality and design integrity. Featuring “green” construction methods, PKDG custom homes are built with extreme care and attention to detail, ensuring maximum sustainability.
