Robert Kaczowka AIA
Robert Kaczowka is the founding Principal of MESA Design, LLC and has over twenty-five years of experience in architectural design, planning and project management. Robert graduated with honors from the New York Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Architecture.
Starting his career in Connecticut and New York, Robert was exposed to the historic roots of New England and the architectural influences of Boston and New York City. Then a move to the West Coast unleashed a passion for the natural beauty of the American West.
While working on diverse commercial and residential architectural projects, Robert was also designing custom furniture for a steadily growing clientele. The freedom and sculptural essence of furniture design evolved into a furniture company for custom and production furniture. The forces of nature and theories of the cosmos are constant reoccurring themes that manifest themselves in a style of furniture called ‘Natural Modern’.
Rather than trends or reactions, Kaczowka’s approaches to design—listening to the land, building with environmental sensitivity, and embracing all facets of a site’s culture—have shaped his philosophy from the beginning of his career. His spiritual connection to his work, in tandem with a passion for technology, is credited as the reason that he has been and continues to be a leading figure in the Architecture of the American West.
With extensive field construction experience and a substantial portfolio of built work, Robert continues to create buildings which manifest his profound sense of scale and the honest use of materials. His solutions are both pragmatic and poetic, merging established vernacular forms with a Natural Modern aesthetic
Sculptural, contemporary, site-specific architecture is our specialty. Each design shares a connection to the environment, because our structures grow from their sites. We seek a constant dialogue between interior and exterior and combine organic materials with unconventional shapes; melding form and function. Our designs, described as Natural Modern, have evolved over the past 25 years, with a remarkable diversity of projects that strive to echo the natural landscape and Vision of each Client
