R. Douglas Mansfield Architect, Inc.
R. Douglas Mansfield Architect, Inc., based in San Clemente, California, has quietly developed an impressive client list of elite and very loyal entrepreneurs, industry leaders and executives since its early inception in Laguna Beach in 1997. Our impressive list of clients has been built upon a combination of our creative design solutions and our very personal and collaborative service, our focused work ethic and a strong foundation of trust. Our newer clients learn very quickly that their interests are our highest priority. We make it our business to help our clients navigate through the ‘processes’ of design, jurisdictional approvals and the construction phase. We aim to find a perfect balance between beauty/quality vs. our client’s desired financial commitment. We continually remind our clients that every detail and every decision lead to the final result.
Over 30+ years of invaluable experience have been accumulated working through the myriad of development challenges that are prevalent in some of California’s most exclusive and prestigious neighborhoods such as Newport Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla and Laguna Beach, among many other notable locations. Our creativity and strong reputation have led to a broad portfolio of diverse project types including high end luxury estates, cozy beach houses, major renovations and additions, smart merchant built housing, luxury boutique hotels and spas, swim clubs, unique commercial projects and town architecture.
In addition to features in print and media over the years, our projects have been consistently honored with over 70 awards, including 10 coveted gold nugget awards. Our extensive design work at the Five Diamond Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa in Rancho Santa Fe has contributed to multiple accolades and awards. (Named #1 Hotel in the US, #1 Hotel in California, #1 Relais & Chateaux in North America by US News and World Report Travel in 2015 and recognized for several ‘Best’ awards by Conde Nast Traveler).
