“Your home is too important for an off-the-shelf design. It should be something that gives you comfort every time you walk in the door and be a place you are proud to host family and friends.”

Our Story

David Cox founded Design DCA in 2006 after several years of leading the design department of a successful single-family builder in Houston, Texas and working for designers in Florida and the Midwest. David works in all styles, but modern design holds a special appeal for him. He is a fan of mid-century modern architecture and furniture and is heavily influenced by this era of design.

Having also spent some time in his career as a project manager for a large regional builder, David has a great deal of first-hand experience in construction practices and techniques. He incorporates this knowledge into his modern designs, creating homes that are unique, but use common practices and materials to ensure ease of construction and reasonable cost.
