LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO TRY TO LIVE IT IN SOMEONE ELSE’S HOUSE
A LIFE DISCONNECTED IS EMPTY
Don’t live your life trying to remember when you lost track of the things that matter most.
LIVING SOMEONE ELSE’S VISION IS FRUSTRATING
Don’t live your life fitting into someone else’s dream.
LIVING LIFE ON YOUR TERMS SHOULDN’T BE ABOUT COMPROMISE
Don’t live your life wondering where the joy is.
MAKE THE LIFE YOU WANT, THE LIFE YOU LIVE
Discover the fullness of a life and home connected with your community, your environment, and your loved ones.
Discover the satisfaction of collaborating with a team focussed on your goals, your vision, and your wellbeing.
Discover the joy of inquiry and the exploration towards realizing your dreams.
Our clients want to live life to the fullest.
They want to live life on their own terms.
Our clients value connection to… Loved Ones, Lifestyle, and Location.
It’s all important to them, but they’ve come to realize that they can’t live that life in someone else’s house.
What’s worse, they worry that as time passes, they lose just a little more of that connection. They worry that they’ll waste precious years trying to fit their lives into someone else’s space.
Shouldn’t you be able to embrace living life on your own terms?
We’ve spent over 3 decades creating those same connections and elevating every day life for our clients and ourselves.
Through that experience we’ve developed a plan, we call it the 3 C’s of California Living.
You deserve to be connected to what matters most to you. The entire process of designing and building your home will be a series of decisions about connecting life, light, and what’s most important to you.
Your life has a story made up of many characters and plots. Designing a home for life on your terms is just as complex. Bringing the design team, engineers, and contractors into the story with you adds richness, to the process.
Your home deserves a fresh perspective. It’s the place to live out the story of the life only you can live. Inquiry and exploration keep us engaged in transcending the ordinary and delivering the unexpected.
Connection, Collaboration, and Curiosity
It defines what we’ve been up to, right here in Los Angeles, where we’ve lived and worked for over three decades.
We navigate the winding path of municipal building requirements and approval processes every day. We hawk budgets and sweat the details so our clients don’t have to. We focus on the human element and cultivate relationships because our work together is long-term and will last a lifetime.
If you’re wondering what “Connection. Collaboration. Curiosity.” has to do with choosing the right architect, download our guide.
We’re the right fit… but not for everyone.
Once you’ve researched all of your options, let’s set up a time to meet and find out if we’re right for each other. We look forward to getting to know you and would appreciate the opportunity to explain our 3-step, Connection, Collaboration, Curiosity process to you.
Over 3 decades of living and working in Los Angeles have helped us hone the process and apply it to efforts as diverse as the projects we design, creating the Ocean Charter School, teaching at USC, UCLA, and in India, our involvement with railLA, and the Los Angeles World’s Fair. This is the life we’ve wanted to live.
Imagine what it would be like if we helped you make the life you want the life you live.
