About US

From Vienna, Austria to the US Westcoast. Our Story.

At Khandroo Designs, we believe that every design and build should be unique and sustainable. Let me ask you this? How often do you find yourself driving down a street feeling like you are trapped in a time loop because your surroundings seem to be repeating themselves constantly? Cookie-Cutter homes as bland as they might be, are unfortunately a staple of Southern California’s building landscape due to cost and time savings they give the builders working on them.

Our mission is to help anyone looking to give their home – regardless of its current stage – the unique architectural design and feel it deserves while reducing its environmental impact to a minimum. We will sit down with you and listen to the vision you have in mind and work on a viable strategy to turn it into a reality. In the end your home is a place you should be able to relax and feel safe in, and once you do, our mission is accomplished!
