“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.”
David Cox, Principal
Award-Winning Modern Design Meets Practical Construction
Are you dreaming of building a custom home? Design DCA in Houston, TX was founded in 2006 by David Cox. With past home building experience as a project manager and leader of a design department, David ensures his designs are not only functional and cost efficient for the home builder, but also beautiful and modern for the homeowner. Design DCA uses its talents and experience in the home building industry to create one-of-a-kind spec homes for home builders or unique luxury home experiences for homeowners. Whatever your preferred style of residential architecture – modern design, traditional home design, or somewhere in between with a transitional style – Design DCA can create your dream home.
Better service makes a better home.
As a small, family-owned studio, we treasure the experience we offer our clients, both builders and families. In our 15 years of operation, we’ve realized that better service makes a better home. By really listening to your needs, taking the time to fully understand, and working one-on-one instead of passing you to different representatives, we can produce a more customized and satisfactory design.
Our mission is to deliver innovative and sophisticated designs that meet client needs while providing unparalleled service.
Experience makes all the difference.
Design DCA is a residential design firm that specializes in transitional and modern homes. We’ll work with you one-on-one to map out the details of your dream home. We also work with builders to design unique and marketable speculative home projects.
Over 30 years as a builder and designer have fueled David’s passion for modern design that incorporates practical construction techniques. The result is unique design with reasonable building costs and time. His inspiration comes largely from mid-century modern architecture and classic European manor houses, but his extensive experience has given him the skills to bring virtually any design to life.
