Chapman Design Associates


Introducing CDA

Chapman Design Associates is a small residential design firm located in Los Altos, California. The Principal of the firm, Walter Chapman, has been designing homes for thirty years. Working primarily in the western foothill communities of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, CDA has helped over 800 clients realize their goals and dreams for their homes and their families.

As a referral based company, personal attention to our client's needs, clear and efficiently prepared plans, and an eye for design have been the hallmark of our practice. A working relationship with planning and building department staffs, and connections with local contractors, ensures a smooth process for our clients. From the first conceptual design to the gleam of fresh paint on the finished product, our goal is to make the experience of building a home an enjoyable one.

Please explore our site. We have tried to provide enough general information about how we work, examples of the homes we have designed and a few personal touches so that you may have a general sense of who we are, and what we can do to help you with your design needs.
