Mark co-founded Rehkamp Larson Architects with his wife Jean in 2000 following his entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to design. After receiving a B.A. from St. Olaf College, Mark earned his Master of Architecture degree from the University of Minnesota in 1992. Mark is committed to leading clients through an architectural design process that includes close collaboration with builders, interior designers, landscape architects and makers. Mark is a licensed architect in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nevada and Oregon.
Mark was the recipient of the Architect of Distinction Award in 2016 from AIA Minnesota and the AIA Young Architect Award in 2005. He has served as Chair of the AIA Minnesota Residential Architecture Committee, steering committee member of the Architecture and the Psyche Symposium, and jury panelist of various local and national residential design competitions. He has lectured locally on cabins, renovations and the design process, co-teaches an architecture course in the Art Department at St. Olaf College and frequently serves as a mentor to students pursuing architecture. Prior to founding the firm, he worked in the offices of Vince James, The Leonard Parker Associates, Julie Snow Architects and HGA.
When not at the drawing board, Mark can be found at the tiller of a sailboat, plein air oil painting, Nordic skiing with his family or chopping wood at the cabin.
Jean cofounded Rehkamp Larson Architects with husband Mark Larson in 2000 with the vision of an inspired, collaborative, client-focused residential design practice. At the core of this work is a passion for the creative process of designing good places for people to live. Jean is a licensed architect in Minnesota, Iowa, Utah, Nevada and Florida. She received her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Minnesota in 1993.
In 2000, Jean was a recipient of the AIA Young Architect Award and in 2006, she was named Emerging Talent of the Year by Midwest Home magazine. Her work was described as “very down to earth, with a beautiful kind of elegant simplicity to it.” Jean is also the recipient of the 2019 Architect of Distinction Award from AIA Minnesota. Jean is the author of The Farmhouse: New Inspiration for the Classic American Home (Taunton Press 2004). This book stems from her interest in the principles of rural design and explores 20 modern examples. As a founding counselor of the Congress of Residential Architecture (CORA) and an active participant in the Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN) of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Jean connects with a broader national community of professionals in residential design.
A native of rural Marshall, Minnesota, Jean now resides in the southwest metro with her husband Mark. They continue to follow their two active adult sons, Andrew and Peter, in the pursuit of science, running, choral music and Nordic skiing. Yoga and watercolor painting provide balance in a full life.
