    Klopf Architecture invites members of BAYA and COTE to our office. Following a quick tour of our office we'll have an open discussion of our design philosophy, our processes, client advocacy efforts, and share some of our recent projects.

    Klopf Architecture is a forward-thinking architectural design studio with a team of 17 recognized for our significant body of Mid-Century Modern (MCM) remodeling work and MCM-inspired new residences. We’ll delve into key design elements of our work, our unique perspectives, and our approach to minimizing the carbon footprint of our projects. For example:

    Renewal, Reuse, and Resources: Prioritizing the application of embodied carbon versus operational carbon in our remodeling projects becomes a crucial aspect integrated into our design approach.

    Borrowed Landscapes: Our architectural approach embraces the concept of borrowed landscapes, where the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces merge seamlessly.

    Architecture as a Backdrop: Architecture should enhance and complement life rather than overpower it, serving as a backdrop, and supporting the experiences and interactions within spaces.

    Balanced Light: Light plays a critical role in defining the atmosphere and mood of architectural spaces. A balanced interplay of natural and artificial light creates harmonious environments.

    Simplicity and Clean Lines: Our design philosophy centers around simplicity, clean lines, and minimalism.

    Timeless and Modern Aesthetics: We strive to create designs that transcend time and remain relevant for generations to come.

    This tour is hosted by Klopf Architecture in collaboration with AIASF Bay Area Young Architects (BAYA) and Committee on the Environment (COTE).
