Profile of GRAHAM Architecture

Carlton Graham (1968)


GRAHAM Architecture was founded by Architect Carlton Graham in Laguna Beach, California. The firm provides full service Architecture, Interior Design and Construction Management professional services. We work in close collaboration with clients and top builders to create architecture of the highest quality.

The firm's work explores the relationship between the dwelling and the landscape. Large windows and sliding doors are often used to frame views and visually blend the indoors and outdoors with nature. Our primary goal is to create buildings that remain timeless, have a positive effect on people's lives and create a comfortable place to live.

We do not have a style of architecture. Each project is a unique response to our clients lifestyle and particular site. The firm's design work is often characterized by simple forms contrasted with natural materials resulting in sophisticated, elegant environments that embody a sense of warmth and luxury. Our work has been described as "warm modern" with an emphasis on natural materials such as wood and stone.

Carlton was educated at the University of Texas at Austin, where he earned a degree in Architecture. He worked for several years in Los Angeles with award winning Architects like Mark Mack and Frank Israel. Carlton later moved to Laguna Beach where he opened GRAHAM Architecture. Carlton is a licensed Architect and is registered in California and Texas. He has worked for over 15 years in the profession.
