About Us

Speaks English, French
Locally owned
Greater Bay Area Award-Winning Design Build Firm
MacLeod Design & Construction, established in 1995, is an award winning full service residential design/build firm located in Berkeley, CA. We are owned and operated by Ian MacLeod, AIA, a licensed architect and general contractor. At MacLeod Design & Construction, we specialize in green building and take pride in creative, innovative, and high quality residential projects with an emphasis on customer service and environmental sustainability. We enjoy challenging and unusual projects that require a high degree of care and finesse from the initial design stages to final materials and finishes. We do architectural work ranging from kitchens and baths to whole house remodels or new construction. As design/builders, we are able to integrate our practical knowledge of construction materials and methods with the higher vision of well-designed beautiful spaces. Because we do cost estimating as part of the design process, we are able to adjust the project early on to accommodate the clients’ budget and avoid any large cost surprises once the design is completed. High priority is given to environmental concerns such as renewable and recycled building materials, natural and low-toxicity materials, recycling of construction waste, energy efficiency and daylighting, and alternative energy possibilities such as photovoltaic solar panels and solar hot water panels. We are currently interested in the concept of net zero energy homes. Our goal is to create lasting and beautiful work, maintain friendly and positive long term relationships with our clients, while making the design and construction process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Additionally, we do construction work for other designers. We consistently work with other local architects who have the highest standards in their work, and have successfully completed several projects on some of these architects’ own homes. Ian MacLeod received a Master of Architecture from U.C. Berkeley in 1993. He received several awards and prizes including an AIA scholarship, the Bakewell & Brown prize (for hand drawings of architectural detail), and the John K. Branner Traveling Fellowship for 9 months of independent travel and study. He has over 25 years experience in construction having started working part-time for his father's firm at the age of 17.
