Why Build With Us?
As Swiss and German architects practicing in the U.S., we strive to fuse the best design, technologies and materials from the U.S. and Europe in our projects in California and Colorado.
We specialize in designing and building elegant, contemporary buildings that are comfortable to live in, have minimal impact on the environment, are beautifully crafted and respond to the site and owners.
Extensive communication with our clients is a key ingredient to designing their dream project. We never charge for time spent in meetings so we can make sure we really understand your lifestyle and match you with the right house for you.
Through our cooperative building materials purchasing program we can make sure we get our clients the best prices, and we often source straight from the factories in Europe. On recent projects, the savings for our clients have exceeded our design fees for the entire house.
Call us for a free consultation: (510) 381-1567 for California and (303) 578-0001 for Colorado.
We are looking for clients to build either a 100% passive solar home that does not require heating or cooling or a strawbale home. The first client to sign up in either category will get 20% off our services.
We have now two offices! With the recent success of our Bay Area practice we have decided to open a second office in Colorado to better serve the mountain region.
Florian Speier, the founder of Zeitgeist Design, has recently published a series of articles on Green Home Guide in response to questions asked from homeowners around the country. The topics covered in the three articles include how to renovate an old house for energy-efficiency, how to start when getting a house “off the grid”, and heating systems.
