Robert (Bob) Kaczowka Architect AIA
Robert Kaczowka is the founding Principal of MESA Design, LLC and has over thirty years of experience in Architectural Design, Construction and Planning. Robert graduated with honors from the New York Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Architecture. Starting his career in Connecticut and New York, Robert was exposed to the historic roots of New England and the progressive innovative buildings of New York City. Then a move to the West Coast unleashed a passion for the natural beauty of the American West. Rather than trends or reactions, Kaczowka’s approaches to design—listening to the Client, the land, building with environmental sensitivity, and embracing all facets of a site’s culture—have shaped his philosophy from the beginning of his career. His spiritual connection to his work, in tandem with a passion for technology, is credited as the reason that he has been and continues to be a leading figure in the Architecture of the American West. Holding Architectural Licensing in 5 states, Robert continues to create buildings which manifest his profound sense of interpreting each Client’s vision and desires, scale, beauty and the honest use of materials. His solutions are both pragmatic and poetic, merging established vernacular forms with a Natural Modern aesthetic.
What our clients Have to say
"The Design of the exterior completely exceeded my expectations! I get so many compliments on the 'curb appeal' of my home, and I couldn't be happier. If you are looking for an experienced Architect and Partner, Robert is your guy! Robert was extremely helpful and really coached me through the entire process, and made a point to meet with me whenever I came to town. My house is gorgeous, and that is all thanks to Robert! Robert also worked closely with me and my builder throughout the building process, checking things as it went along, as I was not in town. Robert continues to support me by answering questions and offering recommendations when they arise."

The Difference between Drawing/drafting and Design
While every architect can be a draftsman, not every draftsman is an Architect. The difference in "drafting up a set of plans" versus "Designing a Home" is night and day. An Architect is a licensed professional, with years of schooling and training, versed in making something beautiful and Inspiring. A draftsman usually has technical experience in producing a set of plans, while not the Design background and education required to achieve Architectural Excellence.
