Since 2013 kbv llc has been providing high-end contemporary design that is attainable and logically sustainable.


Our Mission

Emphasize creating balance, solving future problems, and placing design at the forefront.

KBV offers conceptual residential design to help get your project started.

After five minutes of sitting down with Bismarck-based architect Katie Vasbinder I know that, to her, good design is not about square footage, number of rooms or even a zip code.
— Marnie Lahtinen, Be Magazine

Katie B Vasbinder has been practicing architecture and design for over 10 years throughout the Midwest.  Her previous design work includes a large range of projects from the Bismarck State College Student Union Expansion and the Bismarck Public Schools Career Academy to smaller, more intimate projects like single family home additions and remodels.
