Carpinteria, CA (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
Dylan Chappell Architects, specializing in modern Santa Barbara architecture, has opened a new office at 550 Maple Ave., Suite A, in downtown Carpinteria.
Known for its functional and energy efficient modern design, DCA brings a fresh and interactive approach to the design process. DCA is a full-service architectural and planning firm that creates residential, retail, and commercial buildings.
“I started DCA based on the simple idea that buildings can serve as a link between culture, nature, and the people who inhabit them. We are a uniquely creative firm geared to helping people realize their architectural dreams in both a timely and highly cost effective manner,” noted Mr. Chappell.
His domestic and international projects include restaurants, resorts, retail, educational facilities, multi-family housing, and custom residences. Mr. Chappell is the author of the series “A Guide for Homeowners – Building Strategies for a New Age,” which includes the popular “DCA’s Great Design System.” This system is a leading edge approach that is truly different.
The Great Design System is a summary of the five phases used in designing a custom new home or residential remodel. This guide includes details on what information an architect needs from a client, what clients can expect in services and plans from an architect, and an outline of fees and typical costs for each of the five phases. This guide is a general and gentle introduction to the very exciting world of working with an architect to make your dreams and visions for a new home a reality.
Born in Ventura and a Buena High School graduate, Mr. Chappell holds a Bachelor of Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He also studied modern architectural design in Denmark at The University of Copenhagen. He is a licensed California Architect. His pro bono projects have included rebuilding from the 2008 Tea Fire and Casa de Una Esperanza, an orphanage in Juarez, Mexico.
Clients can get to know DCA by watching “A Studio Visit With Dylan Chappell,” a short video introduction into the firm’s philosophy, where Mr. Chappell explains why he got into architecture and how he finds his passion for being a designer.
