Paul McClean trained as an architect in Ireland and founded McClean Design in 2000. Over the last fifteen years, MCCLEAN DESIGN has grown into one of the leading contemporary residential design firms in the Los Angeles area committed to excellence in modern design. We are currently working on more than twenty large homes across much of Southern California with additional projects in San Francisco, Vancouver and New York.
Our projects reflect an interest in modern living and a desire to connect our clients to the beauty of the surrounding natural environment. We make extensive use of glazing systems to maximize views and provide a warm light filled contemporary space. We strive for simplicity and an openness to the surrounding landscape that erodes the division between indoor and outdoor spaces; homes with an emphasis on texture and natural materials.
We are committed to environmentally sustainable design practices and have extensive experience in both Orange and Los Angeles counties with a proven ability to navigate complicated approval processes such as the Laguna Beach and Beverly Hills Design Review Board as well as Coastal Commission. We keep an open mind on questions of style preferring to strike a balance between the best solution for the site, our clients’ preferences, and what is potentially approvable for each particular site.
We work with both homeowners and developers and our staff offers a full range of design skills ensuring that our projects are completed in a timely manner and to the highest standards. We continue to strive for excellence in design and to push the boundaries of imagination in creating extraordinary spaces that we hope will provide enjoyment for many years to come.
