Welcome to KAA Design. Led personally by our founding Partner, Grant Kirkpatrick, Partner Duan Tran, and Principal Patti Baker, we are a design studio that has been dedicated to advancing the California lifestyle through contemporary architecture since 1988.
Our one-of-a-kind homes place a premium on warmth, comfort and beauty, while expressing a lifestyle narrative rooted in the architectural traditions of the early modernists Frank Lloyd Wright, Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra. This spirit drives our core values - our only set of "rules" - in a place where there are no rules for design:
- We foster awareness of the value of contemporary design
- We maintain architectural integrity and authenticity
- We embrace the wide range of voices that bring richness to every venture
- We have fun in the process
Our ultimate aim never wavers: residences that set the stage for a modern experience of the California Dream.
Elevating design through leadership.
Organizations we support and who share our values.
