A South Bay specialist, thorough architect, diverse in design, and unwavering in his commitment to clients
Doug's primary inspiration for his designs comes from his clients. Their lifestyles and aesthetic preferences form the foundation from which Doug's ideas can begin to take shape. Doug is the sole designer on each project. He Is known for producing designs very quickly, thus saving clients time and money as typically the subject properties are very expensive. Relying on a selected group of trusted builders, Doug works to ensure that each design is successfully carried out, visiting sites often to assess the progress of each home. The firm is unique because Doug's homes are not limited to any particular style. His portfolio encompasses Coastal Architecture, Farmhouse, Contemporary, Beachy Craftsman, Santa Barbara Spanish, Italianate, and French Provincial. Doug's knowledge of architectural history allows him to remain true to each style both inside and out.
Blessed to live and work in some of Southern California's most coveted oceanfront communities, Doug understands the importance of efficient planning. As property is extremely valuable in regions particularly with views of the water -Doug has become adept at maximizing space within homes, working with clients to determine the ideal placement and flow of rooms to capture significant views-whether waterfront o pastoral. A master of site analysis, Doug thoughtfully creates logical plans that resonate with the landscape, taking advantage of all available square footage. To ensure interior harmony, he minimizes hallway space, creating open floor-plans that evoke feelings of unity and expansiveness.
My greatest satisfaction comes from seeing the happiness and comfort my designs bring to your life.
