We know you can build a home anywhere in the world, but we also know why you’ve chosen Manhattan Beach. It has the most beautiful beaches in California, a vibrant, yet livable community, and the best of the best in food and culture. What used to be a secret is now one of the most coveted zip codes in the US.

That’s exactly why we’ve chosen to live and work here. We could build homes anywhere in the world, but we’re here, because we want to build homes that are an archaeological signpost of our time. This is our town and we revel in building homes that make your heart sing.

While most people would agree that building a home is stressful, our team excels in this atmosphere. We like nothing better than organizing expensive deliveries of European marble, installing 20’ panes of glass or coordinating street closures for a 70 ton crane to deliver 600 sheets of drywall. We love this stuff because it is tricky and demanding and so satisfying, when it comes together in a way that is truly individualized.
