Welcome to Michael Blakemore Architects

We are a boutique architectural design firm specializing in custom single family homes. The firm is currently designing projects in several coastal Orange County cities, Northern California and on the oceanfront in Cabo San Lucas BCS, Mexico. Each home we undertake is unique in style, uncompromising in quality, and technologically sophisticated. Our goal is to create a tangible expression of our clients design aspirations.

“I see each home I undertake as a privilege, I am fortunate to be able to work with highly intelligent, creative, and interesting clients. The give and take of the design process and the creative push and pull between architect and client always leads to very unique design solutions.
I am very proud to be a part of that effort.”
~ Mike Blakemore

Michael Blakemore founded the firm in 1998 after 10 years as an associate with SB Architects of San Francisco, and as a senior designer for Perkins Eastman Architects of New York City and WATG of Newport Beach, California. The firm has completed over 30 residences and designed over 50 since its inception. This experience has given the firm an extensive in depth knowledge of entitlement processing in difficult coastal environments. We have also developed strong relationships with local engineers, land planners, land surveyors, geologists, historians, landscape architects and local contractors. It is with these strong relationships that Michael Blakemore Architects can produce a well thought out, well documented, cohesive and beautifully designed project.
