Mike McCabePartner, AIA, LEED AP
“I like to think of the work we do as a narrative. In particular, I see the places we design as the story of a shared vision that we develop with our clients. The buildings that result from this process reflect who our clients are and tell a story of a place and a harmonious way of living in that place.”
Mike is originally from Florida and graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in 1995 with a Bachelor of Architecture, joining Walker Warner Architects in 1997. Mike has lived on the East and West Coasts of the United States, as well as in Poland, Germany and India. His time spent living overseas, as well as his travels within the U.S. have reinforced a deep appreciation for contextually appropriate design. For each project, Mike draws inspiration from the local cultural and physical context with a goal of combining the best principals of regional vernacular structures with a modernist point of view, resulting in timeless architecture that reflects the client’s vision.
As a Principal, Mike leads the design of multiple projects while also collaborating on the design and management of select projects with Brooks and Greg. In the past, he has managed some of the firm’s complex site projects including the House of Flowers, Quintessa Pavilions, Oak Woodland Residence, Sonoma Ranch, and Foothills Modern Residence.
Mike leads an active lifestyle that includes rock climbing and bicycle racing. When time allows, he can also be found working in his wood shop or remodeling his 1920s house. Mike lives in Burlingame, California with his wife and two daughters.
