…a full-service architecture firm

kM Architecture is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in Placerville, California. Our projects span residential, commercial, specialty retail, mixed-use, health and dental, fitness, and prototype adaptation.

At the core of our design philosophy lays the site. Every site brings a unique set of qualities including topography, tree cover, views, soundscape, and wildlife; together, they shape and build the initial design concept. Using physical models, sketching, computer renderings or animation, we explore daylighting, screening, shading techniques, and form. We closely work with each client to refine the project concept based on their distinct goals and expectations, resulting in a design that creates a responsive interface between site and user.

We believe a clean modern design provides a flexible and open framework for work, life, or play. Our design preference leans toward simple volumes and minimal embellishment, which allows a structure to be a functional backdrop to daily life.

While we may be designers at heart, we are also efficient in delivering timely prototype adaptation projects to our corporate and developer clients. We can handle everything from site investigation to addressing local design guidelines, agency coordination, and permit processing.
