What Our Clients Have To Say

One of the best decisions I have made this year was to hire the osyk3 architect team. I just wanted to share a quick note to thank you for being such good partners. Your team has truly delivered a solution that exceeds my design needs. From our first encounter, you realized the project scope and my end goals. Now as the design phase is finished, I'm even more impressed by your due diligence and proactive approach to help me move the project forward. The oysk3 team really listened, allowed me to share my vision and then executed the vision to fruition. Thanks Guys!

- Jim Klonaris, Kefi Greek Restaurant

[The firm was] exemplary in the manner in which they carried out their business. They acted professionally at all times and instilled confidence in me that their work would be done timely and to my satisfaction.

- Steven Albright, Albright & Company CPA

[The oysk3 team] was of great benefit in grasping the essence of what the group desired by presenting numerous designs and making necessary modifications that allowed us to stay within our limited budget. [The team] followed up with this process by preparing the final design, assisting in choosing eligible bidders, contract preparation, and construction administration.

- David E. Buck, City of Alcoa

From the initial design stage to project completion, we found [the oysk3 team] to be very professional and attentive. [Their] assistance in coordinating interior space planning, finishes, and furnishings was also excellent. Our project was completed on time and within budget, and [their] involvement contributed much to the success of this project.

Some Of Our Recent Projects


A new restaurant in an early 20th-century structure that utilizes two-foot thick exterior walls to support the internal wood structure. The challenges with this space are the fire separation between the new restaurant and the existing apartments on the second floor. A great opportunity for us to show our architectural skills.


This custom designed 2,300 square foot new home provides space for 3-bedrooms (includes a large first floor Master Suite), a large kitchen open to the family room, and a dining room just around the corner from the family room. There's also a spacious laundry/mud room and a large bonus room over the two-car garage.


Located in Knoxville, Tennessee, the
