"I had the good fortune to live in architecturally designed homes during my childhood. This opportunity left me with a lifelong impression and passion. I understand the impact that an architect can make in the quality of daily life. I love to create spaces that feed the human spirit. I feel that architecture at its best has the duty to inspire."
Kappe+Du Architects

Born in Berkeley, California, I am a second-generation architect. I grew up in Los Angeles, and was fortunate to live in two houses designed by my father, Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) founder Ray Kappe. I studied art and politics as an undergraduate at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and worked as a community advocate in the Monterey Bay area.

I received my Masters of Architecture and Urban Design from SCI-Arc, completing a thesis on low-income housing solutions for the United States, and I remain concerned with social issues as they relate to design and architecture—issues such as education, environmental preservation and energy efficiency.

I have lived locally in both San Francisco and Marin Counties. At present, I reside in San Rafael with my wife Diane and we have four adult children. Two of them live in the San Francisco Bay Area, one in Jacksonville, Florida, and one just outside of Stockholm, Sweden.

I love the beauty of the Bay Area and enjoy spending my free time outdoors kayaking and hiking. I have pursued my interest in painting and collage during my whole professional life. I am also fond of taking art photographs throughout California and while traveling in the U.S. and Europe.
