Kurt Krueger Architects:
Custom Residential Design

At Kurt Krueger Architects we specialize in modern architecture for residential homes in Southern California. We are a turn-key architectural firm for historic restorations and new construction. Our focus on design-build means we are your single resource for the design, construction, and finishing of your contemporary home. Our collaborative approach puts the owner at the center of our design process and because we’re design-build, that focus remains constant as we create a home that is as unique as its occupants.

Servicing Brentwood, Los Angeles, California, the firm was founded by Kurt Krueger in 2012 after he spent two decades honing his skills as a craftsman, builder, and architectural designer.

Contemporary Architects

While every project is different, we approach it with the same passion, energy and design rigor to celebrate the aspirations of our clients. We are contemporary – modern – architects meaning that, our designs maximize the potential for light and space, buildings that are comfortably proportioned in scale and blur the boundaries between ‘inside and out.’ We do not define contemporary design by a particular style, but rather an architecture that is of its present time and place.

Modern Green Architects

We are ‘green architects’ in the sense that we believe that green design does not have to be boring and strive to create beautiful buildings that harmonize with the site’s natural features and have minimal impact on the environment. Sustainability does not require complicated technology and expensive materials. While we often encourage active systems such as solar panels, the most sustainable decision we can make can be as simple as the orientation of a building on the site: how it faces the sun for natural daylight, opens to breezes for natural ventilation, and shelters us from harsher elements. These were ancient techniques used by our ancestors out of necessity. It was common sense then, and it still is today.

Historic Renovation

We understand that the historic architecture of your home is priceless. Whether it is a historic renovation or historic restoration, we work closely with you to preserve and protect the historic details that give your home its unique value. We will research your home’s history by utilizing historic drawings and records, photographs and even found materials during construction to renovate your historic home while maintaining its character and charm. In addition, we help you seamlessly navigate through any entitlement process and historical requirements of your local or state authority.

We hired Kurt Krueger Architects to remodel our home and were thrilled with the result. Our home was transformed from an unremarkable midcentury house into a beautiful modern home. We constantly get compliments on our house and are happy to have contributed something positive to the neighborhood. Kurt Krueger is very meticulous and works hard to make sure that every detail of the design works both inside and out. There is literally no corner of the home that hasn’t been thought through! I particularly enjoyed working directly with him to select the furniture and furnishings for our home. Kurt was there during every stage of the design and construction process and was constantly seeking ways to improve the job. I would recommend Kurt for anyone who is interested in great design and an enjoyable experience from an architect who will give your home the same level of care and attention as if it were his own.

I was not only satisfied but felt completely taken care of in the design and construction of my condo. I had a vision and it was carried out beyond my expectations. I would definitely recommend Kurt as well as be privileged if I’m ever in a position to use him again. He procured numerous items and designs I would have never found or considered and they turned out perfect. Even down to helping me pick paint colors! They got the most compliments afterward. Most importantly was the time, care and consideration I felt through the whole process. Renovating and construction can be stressful, but Kurt helped keep me sane and stress free while still delivering stellar results.

I hired Kurt to do a complete re-hab on our mid-century modern home in Brentwood. He did an amazing job in keeping with the original architect’s intent and work but also bringing his own new style. He tied in an amazing cantilevered guest house into the main house and made the whole thing look seamless and beautiful. He has a great eye for detail and is also a pleasure to work with.

The 10 Advantages of Design Build

After seeing so many people struggle with understanding the differences between the Design-Build system of project delivery versus the traditional system. Design-Build has many advantages over the traditional system where an owner himself hires an architect for design, engineers for technical trades, interior designers and a builder for construction or historic renovation.

You may be wondering: what is design-build?

The roots of the Design-Build system came from the nineteenth century figure of the Master Builder, men who had the highest respect from their peers and clients, due to their mastery and knowledge.
