busch-design-naples-cascadeA Los Angeles design and build firm that offers experience and extensive knowledge of green architecture and sustainable landscape design...

Busch Design Build is a thirty year old family-owned business that designs award-winning sustainable architectural structures and landscapes that blend functionality and form to create inspired spaces. We have been in the design and construction industry for over 30 years, and have achieved an unrivaled reputation in our field.

With an unwavering commitment to providing our clients with elegantly and environmentally friendly spaces, we have become the premier build and design firm for those seeking Los Angeles Green Healthy Remodeling, Chemical Sensitivity Construction, pH building design and eco Construction services.

Busch Design Build's president and founder, Douglas Busch, has sought out some of the best design talents, bauBiologists, environmental doctors and toxicologists, and inventors from around the globe to meet the needs of diverse and demanding clientele. We firmly believe that design is a cyclical process that should incorporate elements of site, plan, form, volumes and use into a stylistically coherent whole.

That is why we thoroughly analyze each site before beginning our work, regardless of whether it is in or out of doors, so that we may assess the climate, light, flow, circulation, and other less tangible elements of a space. Busch Design then conceptualizes the two-dimensional layout, taking into account the existing topography, the surrounding area, views, wind patterns and the intrinsic energy of the area to create a design that is both inspiring and Eco-conscious.

Whether you are trying to achieve an updated space that feels warm and welcoming within your home, as well as healthy or would like to create a landscape that is more environmentally friendly and tranquil, the Busch Design Build team can provide you with the services that you need, and a personalized experience that is unparalleled in the industry.

  • eco friendly architectural design
  • chemical sensitivity construction

*Partner Douglas I. Busch has devoted his life to aestheticism. Busch's fine art photographic career spanned over 40 years. Making the transition to three-dimensional art piqued his enthusiasm, as he was thrilled to create a piece or art that could be lived in and experienced.

After a 40-year career as a professional photographer (with photographs in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian and other work acquired by the J. Paul Getty Museum and LACMA here in Los Angeles), Busch redirected his energy from creating two-dimensional art to designing three-dimensional artful structures.

He brings with him an aesthetic sense second to none. For more information on Busch, please visit his photography website at douglasbusch.com. Also visit phliving.us and ecoTECHdesignstudio.com.
