David Watson

As a registered California architect with a Master’s Degree in architecture, David combines his East coast education and work experience with his many years of practice in Los Angeles to create a truly unique architectural office.

David’s passion for building houses sparked at a young age. He learned hands-on, valuable lessons working as a carpenter during his formative years in suburban Washington D.C. These early “field”  experiences continue to inform and inspire David today when working through design issues that require a pragmatic, rational solution.

Outside of the office/studio, David enjoys teaching both architecture and mindfulness to high school students and at-risk youth in our community. He’s also a member of the Habitat for Humanity Community Engagement Team where he speaks to community groups and organizations about Habitat’s mission to build safe, decent and affordable housing for hard-working families and individuals in need. David resides here in Manhattan Beach and his kids attend both Mira Costa and MBMS.
