Nine12 Architects was formed in 2015 by husband + wife, Martin and Kaitlyn. They are licensed Architects and have a passion for residential architecture, especially historic homes. They both graduated from the University of Notre Dame and have been married since 2014. They own two crazy dogs (Lia + Larry) and live in a little brick cottage in East Nashville.


Carli joined the team in 2019 as Lead Interior Designer. She also manages Social Media and Photography for Nine12. She graduated from Abilene Christian University in 2017 with her Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. She loves anything related to art and design, as well as traveling and spending time outdoors - preferably in the mountains.

Josh graduated with his Bachelor's of Architecture from the University of Notre Dame in 2014 with a concentration in Furniture Design and Construction. When he isn't in the Nine12 Studio, he can be found cooking, working on art projects, or on the golf course.
