Lance Kutz



"The built environment reflects deliberate and sometimes unintentional attributes of the users it serves. Architecture is about understanding and realizing these attributes while facilitating a design and process that pushes the expectations, elevates the human ethos, and is respectful and inclusive of its surroundings. Successful projects provide lasting flexible places that function well, encompass a variety of perspectives and experiences, stimulate innovation, and capture the human spirit."

Lance believes that design should be thoughtful, innovative, expressive, and inclusive of all people it serves. These important attributes rooted in his process capture the essence of Human by Design in each project he helps his clients achieve. Lance’s background includes project planning, conceptual design, design development, project coordination, and construction oversight for various civic, cultural, and educational projects. With over 20 years of experience, he is able to communicate effectively with clients, stakeholder and community groups, engineers, and contractors. Lance’s approach to every project includes all parties to ensure a successful and timely completion, while exceeding his client’s expectations. An active member of AIA East Bay, Lance finds satisfaction in creating built environments that inspire community interaction and fulfillment.
