Malcolm is a Bay Area native with an intimate understanding of its regional building styles and climates. Educated at UC Berkeley, his strong appreciation of the craft of building goes hand in hand with thoughtful stewardship of resources. He takes pride in creative problem solving through simple, elegant solutions. Employing a timeless vocabulary and a restrained palette, Malcolm’s projects over the last 20 years have earned multiple awards from the American Institute of Architects and publication in Dwell, Elle Decore, Sunset Magazine, California Home & Design, and the San Francisco Chronicle. Our firm’s design philosophy is rooted in the Bay Region Tradition – site specific, unaffected in style, with strong interior/exterior connections. The play of natural light is of paramount importance in our work, as are the unique challenges of constrained spaces, urban infill, adaptive reuse, and green building strategies. Whether we begin with bare land or an existing structure, our projects develop their character through careful interpretation and sensitivity to each client's program, orientation, context, and climate. We bring warmth to modern design.

1 Review for Malcolm Davis Architecture
We are using MDA for building from scratch our house. the style is modern, but also practical and warm. MDA has been the perfect choice. Malcolm is extremely gifted and very experienced. He does the work himself and does not just pass it on to more junior staff. He is also attentive to our inputs.
