Warren Lawson Architect, based in Southern California, specializes in custom residential design, bringing over 30 years experience to tapping the potential of each project while providing maximum client satisfaction.


Warren’s personal attention is directed toward translating client goals and dreams into a built reality that is specifically attuned to their lifestyle, a place that makes life more interesting and enjoyable, where being there is its own reward.


Each project, regardless of its size or scope, is approached as a way to improve, architecturally, the way in which life can be experienced.


The place we call home, the one place most intimately ours, if grounded in life, can be its celebration. Living there ought to feel right. Whatever its size - a remodel, or new from the ground up - if attuned to life and the earth, these environments when thoughtfully designed can add dimension to our lives. At their very best, they can make waking in the morning a special moment.


Hitting the mark architecturally - achieving results that reward - is a complex process. Aside from the architect’s design skills, effective collaboration between all those involved is key to success. This includes effective communication and mutual grasp of design intent. All the myriad decisions made throughout the course of a project should lead, ultimately, toward client satisfaction with the outcome.


Toward that end, I utilize “Building Information Modeling”, a digital project delivery method. With BIM, design intent can be effectively managed, communicated, and comprehended by those involved. Risk of faulty decisions and costly errors going undetected until later is reduced, thus improving the prospects of achieving a successful outcome.


...The places we inhabit become part of us. For our sake, they deserve to be the best we can make them.


Additional Priorities

  1. -A client happy with the results.

  2. -Successful joint effort by all involved in the building process.

  3. -A built environment that succeeds, both experientially and financially, in meeting the client’s goals and mine, enhances their life, meets my standards, and  whenever possible, leaves the earth a better place to be.

  4. -Finding the most effective and appropriate means of weaving client lifestyle patterns with site conditions and energy considerations.

  5. -Facilitating the achievement of maximum integrity by grounding the design firmly in the present and, when appropriate, using building materials in as simple, honest and authentic a manner as possible.

  6. -Respect the fact that each project is for the client; that their money is paying for it.

  7. -Aim high with feet firmly planted on the ground.


Method

  1. -Collect data; establish wants, goals and priorities including esthetic values and   budgetary limitations - make a wish list.

  2. -Identify an effective path to achieving those goals and priorities.

  3. -Identify potential obstacles to achieving those goals and priorities; Search for means of reconciling and merging conflicting viewpoints, goals, esthetic values, etc.. 

  4. -Explore possibilities; look beyond the familiar.

  5. -Encourage early participation by the contractor along with other team members.


Projects include custom residences, from simple home remodels and additions, to ground-up, high-end homes, including interiors. Past project locations include Malibu, Los Angeles, La Jolla, Big Sur, Phoenix, western Arizona,  Oregon.
