Michael Connell Architect designs with long-term sustainability in mind, understanding that as households grow, a flexible design continues to accommodate ever-changing needs. We consider clients collaborators and strive for open, trusting relationships with them. We strive to respond creatively to existing conditions with a practical knowledge of construction.

Michael Connell, a Bay Area-based Architect for 30 years, began his practice soon after receiving his Masters of Architecture degree from UCLA’s School of Architecture and Urban Design. He also has an undergraduate degree in Environmental Design from UC Davis. His current passions include landscaping his recently completed house in Sonoma County, softball, and creative dance. His work has been published in Sunset Magazine, Renovation Style, Elle Décor, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Sierra Club Magazine.

Alexandra Ismerio is devoted to forging a deeply collaborative engagement between client, builder, and designer. She provides comprehensive design services in creating adaptable spaces. Her artist's approach to experimenting with materials, years of hands-on experience in the trades, and a collector's eye for tracking down just the right object, sets her apart from other designers. Her goal is not to impose a specific style or aesthetic ideology: it is simply to help clients realize their own distinct visions, and bring those visions into material existence.
