*Authorized Dura Supreme Cabinetry* *Authorized Canyon Creek Cabinetry* We work with homeowners who are busy professionals working long days or running their kids to multiple activities and don't have hours to spend in showrooms. They have tried working with architects and are overwhelmed when they are sent to select materials on their own or they are frustrated when they can't read their drawings or visualize their new kitchen and bath remodel. Usually they are trying to make responsible investment decisions but are secretly worried they may make choices they decide they don’t like until it is too late. We typically work with people who live in Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Kensington, Lafayette, Oakland, Piedmont, San Francisco, and Walnut Creek.

Based in Berkeley, Husband and wife team Erick and Elisa Mikiten have been creating beautiful buildings since 1991. Our work is inspired by context and nature, creating innovative spaces and sculptural, inspiring buildings. Above all, we listen carefully to our clients' needs and dreams, and bring them to fruition. Copy/Paste this URL into your browser for our free guide, How to Hire an Architect: <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.mikitenarch.com/resources.html">http://www.mikitenarch.com/resources.html</a>. Erick Mikiten is known as a highly sought after architect for elegant, Universally Designed homes. He is famous for his expertise in designing highly personalized homes around a whole family’s needs without sacrificing poetic, dramatic design. We examine a site or existing building intensively to understand it before we start drawing. This helps us design buildings that are rooted in their place and 'feel right', even if they do not follow the dictums of a particular historical design. We are inspired by clarity, intricacy, and light. We love the brilliant gestures of Rodin and Calder, the sophisticated detail of Japanese joinery, the writings of Louis Kahn, the buildings of Alvar Aalto, Louis Kahn, and Luis Barragan, and the movement of the sun and breezes around every site we work on. We believe that architecture should inspire, and lift people beyond the every day, connecting with the grace of nature. Every project we do incorporates green design, reflecting our respect for nature. We are able to usher projects through LEED or other rating systems if desired by the client. Our Shinsei Gardens project achieved a LEED-Platinum rating for multifamily housing. As a wheelchair rider, Erick Mikiten has particular insights into Universal Design, the creation of spaces, indoors and outdoors, that are fully usable by everyone - regardless of their level of physical ability, and seamlessly integrated into beautiful architecture. Due to the level of inspection around so many clients' particular disabilities, we naturally look deeper into EVERY client's needs and desires. The process we have developed, and the insights we have gained while working on accessible architecture come around to inform every project, making places that are gracious, nurturing, and welcoming to all.

For 24 years, Edward Levitch used his extensive experience and inexorable work ethic to cultivate a successful business. In 1984 the firm incorporated and his son Maurice joined the family business in an official capacity.

We consistently deliver outstanding design that makes the most of your budget—along with innovative ideas that transform your space into something truly extraordinary. Our practical experience covers the entire spectrum of projects, from small commercial remodels to large corporate campuses, from single family homes to multi-family buildings. The common thread in our buildings is the belief that architecture can lift the spirit, and that great relationships make great architecture possible.

Clients look to us to take their ideas and elevate them into a design uniquely tailored to their site, personal, and business needs. We work to keep the lines of communication with clients open at all times to ensure that we can craft a building that is uniquely their own. With this approach, it is possible to create a “signature” building with every project we design. Our firm is committed to conservation and wise use of our natural resources, and minimizing our projects' impact on both the built and unbuilt environment. We also commit a percentage of our billable hours every year to local non-profits in need of pro bono or reduced-cost architectural services.
