Art and Craft

CKA Architects is a Menlo Park based Architecture studio with a focus on residential design throughout the Peninsula and neighboring communities. We strive to create quality designs that are beautiful, functional, affordable and environmentally responsible. We approach each project as a unique opportunity to collaborate with clients and to share our understanding of aesthetics, local regulations and the process of construction.

We would love to hear more about your project, explain our process, and discuss how we may be able to help you. We invite you to explore our portfolio and contact us to schedule a consultation.
