Ismerio+ Architecture and Design has teamed up with Mike Connell. MCAI+ is a full-service, eco-friendly creative team, that is by your side throughout the stages of design, planning, and development. We manage the entire process with you, from the concept to implementation. This includes documentation of existing conditions, schematic design, design development, budget maintenance, navigation through the bureaucratic approvals process, consultation on contractor selection, and job site observation. Control of this entire process ensures a final product that reflects your desires and sensibilities. With offices in San Francisco and Oakland. MCAI+ has projects in Joshua Tree, Calistoga, Napa, Sebastopol, Cotati, Healdsburg, and Petaluma.
We have been teaming up to create beautiful, value-oriented, sustainable homes since 2000. Our philosophy is uniquely collaborative. We take the time to get to know you, to help you hone and refine your vision, and discover more possibilities than you had imagined. As you begin the complex process of making your home a place you can truly call yours, we show you how its design can transform itself with your life, grow with you, and evolve with your future.
From the ground up, our aim is to reuse, reclaim, and respect the legacy of a structure and the appropriateness of the materials to their context. Our “universal design” approach anticipates special needs and is sensitive to aspects of accessibility.
Alex has worked in the building industry for over 25 years including over ten years in San Francisco residential construction before transitioning into architecture. She was awarded her Architectural Degree from California College of the Arts in 2002. Her list of projects spans from the California coasts and deserts, to the Oregon pastures, and urban landscapes of Washington.
In addition to creating unique homes, Alex is the visionary behind trendy restaurants in Joshua Tree, San Francisco, and Seattle. From 2008 to 2015 she collaborated with two Oakland artists to realize a public installation, “Undercurrent,” a series of large-scale sculptures at Lake Merritt that form a permanent part of the Oakland landscape. In her world architecture is where art and function intersect.
