Principle & History

Jacob M. Clark,

Principle Designer & President 

Jacob Clark, the principle designer and owner of Clark Design Build, has an extensive background in residential design and construction.  With a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a master’s degree in architecture from the NewSchool of Architecture and Design in San Diego, Jacob began his career working for two architects in the small coastal town of LaJolla, California working on multimillion dollar homes throughout Southern California.

In 2004, Jacob made the decision to make the move back to his home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Jacob had brought back with him what he learned on the West Coast and started working for a few local home builders/remodelers such as the Winters Group, E. Miller & Associates and Sazama Design Build Remodel as a home designer, building these companies up with a great portfolio of work.   

After gaining extensive experience with the construction side and customer service of home building and remodeling industry, Jacob had developed a business plan he though the industry was lacking and in 2005, Clark Design Build was formed.    Starting out as a design firm and transitioning into a design-build firm in 2009, Jacob Clark has a clear vision of how his projects should be run and what customer service should be provided to his clients.  This vision is what sets Clark Design Build apart from other local builders and remodelers in the area and since has proven to be successful.  

Since Jacob started his career in this industry, his work has been published in several local publications such as the Milwaukee Journal, Milwaukee Magazine and M Magazine.  Most of these projects featured have won awards.  Jacob and his work has also appeared on a few HGTV shows through out the years such as “Look What I Did” and “What You Get For The Money.”  He also had one of his projects used as a set location for a Hollywood film, filmed in Milwaukee area.   For more information on Jacob M.
