Specht Novak was founded on the vision of creating elegant, comfortable, and timeless buildings that are rooted in the unique environments in which they exist and shaped by the character of the people who will inhabit them.

Led by founding partner Scott Specht and partner Jakeb Novak, Specht Novak has over the past 30 years built a reputation as a forward thinking, award-winning, modern architecture firm with a strong philosophy regarding the importance of craftsmanship, detailing and client service.

The firm’s work has been featured in over 250 publications worldwide including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Architectural Digest, Forbes, Travel + Leisure, and many others. Specht Novak has also received numerous awards, including multiple honors from the American Institute of Architects, Texas Society of Architects, LUXE, Architizer, NYC X Design, and a “Record House” award from Architectural Record.  The partners are frequently featured on podcasts, television shows, lectures (including TEDx), and other media outlets as thought leaders on the future of residential design.

Most importantly, we have many repeat clients who appreciate our design and enjoy working with us. We’re nice people and love what we do!
