At Foxlin, we aspire to turn YOUR ideas into reality.

Contemporary Design

Every job is ultimately a service to meet our clients’ needs yet we always embrace the core principals of contemporary design. Stylistically we welcome the diverse desires of our clients and translate them architecturally with the most up to day means and methods for design and construction. We do not define contemporary design as a particular design style of ours or that of our clients, but rather, as architecture of the present day.

Sustainable Design

We combine the “sustainable” expertise of Juintow Lin with the “technological” expertise of Michael Fox to formulate a truly optimistic outlook on the integration of technology and architecture. Our design is a balance of ambitions providing solutions that will satisfy your needs with a contextual, artistic and functional integrity. We believe that in the future sustainable design will not be a special attribute of design but rather that all design will be sustainable.

Interactive Design

As recognized international leaders in interaction design, we are interested in creating environments that not only facilitate interaction between people, but also the environment both inside and outside of a building. We are interested in spaces are that able to customize themselves in response to human stimuli will literally change our worlds by addressing our ever-evolving individual, social, and environmental needs. In other words, it’s time to stop asking what architecture is and start asking what it can do.

Latest Practice News and Articles

I had the pleasure of working with FoxLin Architects on the Mojave Ranch, 40-acre residential community development project. As the owner, we could not have been happier throughout the project. We count on several things from the design team, most importantly quality designs that we could not have conceived on our own. Michael and Juintow were great team members, as they (unlike many architects) were constantly concerned about our project, program, and budget goals. This ensured that what they were designing molded perfectly with the criteria we established as the developer. I highly, highly recommend FoxLin Architects.

Houston Drum

My husband and I worked with FoxLin Architects on our custom ground up home in Carlsbad (north of San Diego), California and we would very highly recommend them. The home is now complete and it is remarkable down to the last detail. We felt like our values were always considered and we had countless conversations about even the smallest of details from paint colors to the cabinetry handles. This level of personal dedication and attention to detail is what constantly put us at ease on the design of our new home.

Yen Shali

We recently built a new home with Foxlin Architects. We couldn’t be happier to build such an amazing house. They were easy to work with and great with designs. The whole project went smoothly with a top notch design by them. We look forward to working with Foxlin on future projects.
