About Us

Design + Build by Lazar (also operating as Design + Build by South Swell) is a signature design+build firm with a passion for innovation and artful living in Southern California. Principal Steve Lazar brings over 25 years of experience in both design and building concepts to each of the homes he creates. Lazar works one-on-one with his clients to create a home for them that is not only uniquely beautiful, but comfortable and functional as well. With no predetermined “recipe” for his homes, each design evolves from the relationship between Lazar & his clients, allowing their individual style and living patterns to shape the blueprint for their home. Each project by Lazar design+build becomes a timeless masterpiece in itself, inspiring those that interact with the space for years to come. What is Design+Build? Design+Build is a common practice in which a single firm is responsible for the entirety of your project, from the conceptual design through completion of construction. Why Design+Build? 1.Thoughtful Design: The processes of design and building should mutually inform one another. With Lazar design+build, your design is optimized by the benefit of a builder’s insight, and your construction is executed with an unflinching respect for your plan’s architectural intricacies, yielding a customized home thoughtfully attuned to your family’s needs and its surroundings. 2.Expedited Completion: The seamless overlapping of the design and building phases allows for speedier transition into construction. Communication is streamlined between Lazar design+build and an established team of professional subcontractors who share a longstanding history of collaboration. 3.Financial Control: Protect your budget by identifying building costs early on and minimizing the need for change orders. Your plans are conceived with an informed and accurate knowledge of their cost. No surprises. At Lazar design+build, we take sole accountability for the cost, timing and quality of our workmanship.
