Michael Burch Architects is a full-service architectural firm founded in 1986 specializing in high-end residential and commercial projects. Our small firm size provides the opportunity for high-quality, personalized and individualized attention to our projects. Known especially for historically accurate houses, we pride ourselves in our extensive knowledge of California’s architectural heritage and building techniques. Our firm works in a variety of styles; in particular we are recognized for our work in the Spanish Colonial Revival style of architecture perfected in California during the 1920s. Our work appears in numerous books on Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in California, most recently, The California Casa by Douglas Woods. The great California tradition of indoor/outdoor living influences our work, so that every new project embodies the essence of California living at its best. Craft and detail, as well as integration into the site and context are central themes of our design philosophy. In addition to architectural design, we provide services ranging from site analysis through landscape and interior design.
