Our relational approach to design takes into account the relationships between interior and exterior, between building and landscape — as well as the most important relationship of all: the relationship between the client and the design.

Knowing that a successful architectural project can only be achieved if both parties are attuned to the vision of the design, we strive to foster a relationship with our clients that allows for a smooth exchange of ideas and free-flowing communication throughout the process.

Architectural Profile

At Busch Design Build, we know the best design is inspired by individuality and tempered by function. A house is not just where you live. It is a reflection of you and of the surrounding environment. It brings together aesthetic desires and functional needs. In creating unique homes and commercial properties, we respect tradition and punctuate it with the unexpected.

Based in Malibu, California, Busch Design Build has developed an international reputation for excellence through two decades of exceptional design and construction projects. Founder and president Douglas Busch has brought together some of the best design talents from around the world to serve the most demanding of global clients.

busch-design-studioWhat Sets Us Apart

The architects at Busch Design Build believe design is a cyclical process that brings the elements of site, plan, form, and use into a stylistically coherent whole.

We start by analyzing the site – including the climate, light, topography, surrounding neighborhood, views, wind patterns, and intrinsic energy of the area – before conceptualizing a two-dimensional layout. We strive to set up a dynamic tension (privacy vs. exposure, light vs. shadow, interior space vs. exterior space, and so forth), merging design and construction with spatial relationships. The key is to create environmentally friendly spaces of tranquility – green organic sanctuaries, relaxed and inspiring, elegant in their simplicity, lofty yet grounded and sustainable.

In the transition from a two-dimensional plan to a three-dimensional structure, emphasis is placed on flow, circulation, and volumes. These elements of design are less scientific than intuitive, based on what it feels like to actually be within the structure.
