Our History

Novat LLC is a design and master builder company  specializing in Integrating Art Into Architecture. Novat LLC was founded in 1999 by renowned artist and designer, Pepsy M. Kettavong. Kettavong graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a BA in art and attended architecture school at the University of Buffalo. Pepsy has a long history of building interiors, exteriors and fine art commissions. His collective artistic vision brings value to both personal and community spaces by emphasizing the aesthetic as well as the practical details of a project.
Since 1999, Kettavong and the Novat team have built public sculptures, remodeled historic homes, created both fanciful and pragmatic interiors & exteriors, designed public parks, private landscapes and museum spaces. Our most notable works are the larger than life size, bronze sculpture, "Let's Have Tea," in the Susan B. Anthony Square Park and the bronze sculpture, "Reflecting," in Nathaniel Square Park. Both projects have become  well-known public symbols in Rochester, New York, and noteworthy tourist destinations.

Our Mission

"To bring a high level of craftsmanship and a unique artistic beauty to projects that fulfill our clients' lifestyle needs through the integration of art into architecture" - Pepsy M. Kettavong
