At KAA Design Group, we approach our new projects by looking at the property as a canvas. A house and its gardens are not viewed as discrete elements, but rather as an integrated and seamless melding of indoor and outdoor spaces, places, and vistas. To us, architecture and landscape are innately dependent on one another - a relationship that is key to our practice and elemental to the ultimate Southern California lifestyle.

Our Landscape Studio is comprised of a passionate team of landscape architects who draw their inspiration from the desires of our clients and the natural beauty of the region and its rich tradition of sun-drenched gardens. The team actively engages with all design disciplines to extend the rigor of classical scale and proportion relationships into the site. Building on our expertise of timeless raw materials - wood, stone, water, flora - we are well-versed at crafting memorable spaces that stir the senses.

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.
