Commercial Designs

Commercial buildings, like our Homes, play an important, but very different role in our lives.

In our 21st Century world, we are likely to spend more time in our places of work than our beloved Kitchens and Family Rooms.  We here at Lichau Associates have many years of experience with all types of Commercial projects ranging  from Medical Offices to Retail Stores to Industrial Facilities.

The use of Architecture, Proper Lighting, Ergonomics & Time-Motion studies are essential to the crafting of efficient and aesthetically pleasing spaces that make your time at work more productive and enjoyable.

We think you might be surprised at how much we can transform your current blahh space into something that ALMOST makes you want to come to work everyday!

Residential Designs

Residential work…  Where do I even begin my thoughts on the possibilities and variations!

The opportunity to design a home for an individual, couple or family is certainly some of the most enjoyable yet challenging work that we do.  There are so many variables involved – issues such as Setbacks, Access, Parking, Landscape, Views, Neighbors and Sunlight; plus the all important aspect of what the client/resident will want, expect and enjoy.

We here at Lichau Associates have over 100 years of combined experience in studying
and designing residential layouts. Over the decades, we’ve designed and overseen the construction of well over 200 costom private homes throughout California and Hawaii.

Being that we are situated in the Sierra Foothills, we’ve become experts at
site planning on sloped and varying terrain – which, actually, when considered with our eyes, can provide more opportunities than obstacles when it comes to creative & expressive design options.

We always relish the chance to meet clients who wish to build a dream house –
hear what their vision is, soak that in and deliver a refined and thought out version of their dream that delivers even more than they initially thought possible.

We strive to form relationships with all of our clients, but something special can happen with our Residential clients – they can become friends…  THAT’S when business is really good!

We invite you to call us anytime and share your dream.
