Skill | Talent | Success

… since 1998

Red Maple is a Workshop of Architects and Designers established in 1998 by Ken Berman and Clare Monteschio.  Located in the western Sonoma County town of Sebastopol, CA., Red Maple specializes in the design of a variety of project types including single family residences, light commercial buildings, attached and detached accessory dwelling units, public and fine art projects, art museums and rain harvesters. 

Ken and Clare have over 50 years of combined work experience in the fields of architecture and construction, have won several design awards from the American Institute of Building Design, had projects televised on HGTV Curb Appeal and have been featured on the front cover of Better Homes & Gardens - Kitchen + Bath Ideas (Fall 2015) - see press section above. 

And best of all for our clients, your project is worked on by both Ken and Clare and not handed off to an inexperienced employee. This is important because with the increased complexity of projects it is our talent and experience that makes a big difference in the design of a unique and successful project and ultimately a happy client.
