Stephen Kern

Vice President / Principal Architect

Stephen Kern joined JAHN in 1982 as a staff architect on the Northwestern Terminal Project. Over his tenure at the firm he has been involved in the design, development and detailing of multiple building types in many different regions of the United States as well as Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The focus of much of his activity has been the development and detailing of custom building enclosures as well as the integration and interface of engineering systems with the architectural design. The emphasis on collaboration and integration of these systems has become increasingly complex and technically challenging as the Firm’s design objectives and environmental philosophy has evolved. His participation in the process of collaboration between clients, designers and consulting engineers in the initial stages of projects carried forward into the construction phase with contractors and manufacturers has provided a solid basis for continued development, understanding and realization of high quality Architectural Design.
