Earlier this month KAA proudly accepted three awards at the 2011 AIA Long Beach / South Bay Design Awards. The firm was in good company as it was honored with one merit and two citation awards for three of its South Bay projects - 1300 Highland Shops & Worklofts (mixed-use), 3rd Street Residence (single-family residence) and 6th Street Residence (single-family residence). Congratulations to the project teams!




About Us

Our design philosophy is predicated on deep, meaningful connections between the house and the land. Southern California is blessed with a nurturing environment that provides extraordinary opportunities for true indoor-outdoor living. The homes we design fulfill that promise with beauty and joy.


Our Thinking

The Mediterranean in Southern California

Architecture inspired by great traditions of the Mediterranean region has a long, rich history in California. The fruits of this long lineage flavor the character of our cities and dot the surrounding hillsides. At KAA Design, we have often found the Mediterranean architectures to be a perfect fit for our clients wishing to build here.
