Cara Kuroda – Principal

Cara Kuroda’s passion is architecture and design. She would draw city layouts and house plans as a child and considers herself lucky to have her passion be her career. Cara has over 20 years experience as a designer and has worked for award-winning architectural firms in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Denver and Philadelphia. Her work as a designer has included a variety of project types including residential, corporate campuses and interiors, chapel design, preschool rooms, to the transformation of a warehouse into a progressive nonprofit high school. She believes strongly in community service. Her education, work experience, travels and time spent in Finland studying architecture has influenced how she integrates site and environmental conditions with new buildings and additions, articulates the use of materiality and incorporates light and form. Cara has a Masters degree in Architecture and an undergraduate degree in Interior Design. She was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area where she currently resides with her husband and two children.
