How We’ll Help You Build an Amazing, Modern Home

Whether you’re looking to remodel your home or build additional units on your property, our integrated design + permitting process, along with our expertise in navigating San Diego’s building codes, will help you build a home tailored to you and your family’s lifestyle.

Building a unique, modern space doesn’t need to feel like an uphill battle. Our decade of experience in designing residential and commercial properties in San Diego has resulted in a proprietary process that simplifies the home building and renovation process.

We provide architectural services for custom homes.  Ten Seventy Architecture specializes in modern + minimalist design but we have a portfolio demonstrating a wide variety of styles we've worked in from mid-century to craftsman + more.

ADU regulations in San Diego are in constant flux. Ten Seventy Architecture is on the cutting edge of the changing regulations, having had dozens of conversations with the DSD within the past few years to understand what can be permitted.  

We're the design studio other architects call when they have ADU related questions.
