KNR Design Studio focuses on residential architecture, including new homes, whole-house renovations, rebuilds, additions, and remodels throughout Silicon Valley. Our design is driven by aesthetics, everyday-usability, and personalization. We work closely with the site and environment to design a functional, beautiful, and energy efficient house that expresses our clients' taste and personality.


We start each project by learning about your goals, expectations, and lifestyle to craft a home that is uniquely tailored to you. KNR Design Studio will work with you through all stages of the project, from initial research and feasibility studies, through design, construction documentation, permitting, and construction administration. We will represent you at planning commissions, appeals boards, and neighborhood architectural review boards. We will also perform regular construction site visits, to ensure that your vision is translated accurately into a reality.
