Joseph S. Novitsky has worked “coast to coast” within a broad range of architectural activities. Working with a structural engineer on the West Coast and then design oriented architectural firms in eastern Pennsylvania and Michigan has broadened his scope of activities, abilities and expectations relating to architectural pursuits. Prior to committing himself solely to the design aspect of the profession, Joe was the sole proprietor of two design/build firms, one in Michigan and then in Oregon. This technical and mechanical experience along within a strong design education from one of the finest architectural programs in the country allows Joe to perform effectively at a very detailed level. JSN has been associated, in house, with Varady Associates, an interior design firm since 1994. This association brings together a talented group of approximately 12 people. We work efficiently and effectively as a team on many building types & size of projects. Annually our team effort produces approximately 150 to 200 projects varying in size from garage additions to major municipal and private facilities.
