Business Description
Klopf Architecture brings the outside in. Our firm creates warm, modern designs that admit natural light and allow openness to nature. Our design approach weighs many factors to create custom designs with just the right level of connection to the outside world: clients' goals and lifestyle, site orientation, views, climate, and neighborhood context. Our primary goal is to create spaces people love to inhabit.

Specializing in new warm, modern net-zero energy houses, we are widely recognized for our work remodeling and adding to mid-century modern and Eichler homes. We believe in bringing these wonderful homes back to life for another generation to love, or creating new, green modern homes that provide the same level of warmth and connection to nature that follow a similar philosophy.

In business for more than 12 years, Klopf Architecture has created designs for four new, modern green or net-zero energy homes and more than 65 mid-century modern home remodels / additions.

Surrounded by lush outdoor colors, chose simple white dinnerware that won't distract or look too busy. Urban Nature and NewWave dinnerware collections combine modern architectural shapes with nature-inspired flowing curves... great for a minimal yet formal tablescape or a casual alfresco party...
