Business Description


Whether the home is a 19th century Victorian, 1920's bungalow, 50's Mid Century Modern or 70's split level, we have extensive experience and expertise with historic construction and styles, and can evaluate your home for renovation potential and guide you through the process of planning, permits and construction. If the home is found to be too difficult or costly to repair we will design a new custom home to fit the site and your tastes and needs.


Combining traditional drawing and state-of-the-art 3D computer modeling technology, we bring the highest level of design quality and customer service to each project. We have a network of design professionals: engineers, consultants and contractors and assemble a team as we develop the design and prepare the documents for permits and construction.

We have served California homeowners since 1985, and in that time have earned a solid reputation for creative, innovative design and quality construction.
