Our Story

A Family Legacy

Frankel Design Build is a one-stop-shop for designing and building luxury homes in the Greater Houston Area.


We're a Full-Service Custom Design-Build Firm.

Frankel Design Build is a family-owned custom home builder based in Houston, Texas. Established in 1988, Frankel offers a true one-stop shopping experience for home buyers — ranging from award-winning architecture, construction, and interior design to home care, land acquisition and custom pools. Frankel offers all of these services in-house and is the only custom home builder in Houston to do so.

In 2010, Frankel began building all of its homes to LEED for Homes standards. These residences are more energy-efficient, more sustainable and more environmentally friendly than conventionally built homes. Frankel is also able to construct LEED-certified homes at the same cost as a traditional home.



Our Leadership Team

Over the years, Frankel has carefully selected the best of the best. We’ve strategically recruited the industry’s leading designers, architects and builders to create award-winning luxury custom homes across Houston. And just like our clients, our employees treat one another just like family.

What Our Customers Are Saying

"“Matt, it was great to see you today. Thank you for walking the house with me to address the punch list items. The longer that we live in this house and also watch other friends’ homes behind built the clearer it becomes that you managed this home exceptionally well and the quality is absolutely top tier. Your attention to detail is very acute and we are very grateful for your work, skill and pride. We have only happy memories through the construction and early residence at Beverly.“"

Ethan Weinstock

""As homeowners, we have bought and sold several homes in the past, but this was our first building experience. Due to our family being two working professionals and two young elementary age school children we had very specific needs and ideas in mind for the home we wanted to build. From the moment we met with Kevin Frankel we knew that the Frankel team was special, and they were the obvious choice to build our home.""
