Paul Brant Williger has over 30 years of Custom Residential Architecture experience, is a graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, and is on the Board of Directors of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art (ICAA). Before graduating from Columbia University, he received an undergraduate degree in Architecture from the University of Illinois and Champaign-Urbana gave him the opportunity to study architecture in Versailles, France. It was while he worked for Robert AM Stern, a professor of his, during and after his studies at Columbia University, where Paul was introduced to traditional residential architecture. Upon arriving in California six years later, he became the lead on several projects he completed with other firms. Until 2013, Paul was a Principal at Appleton & Associates for well over a decade, running his own projects out of that office. Eventually, it made sense to start his own firm and bring over his clients, and in 2013 was successful in doing so. Starting with a half dozen of major custom residential projects located in Woodside, Laguna Beach, and Beverly Hills, he has since expanded and taken on additional projects in Los Angeles, Montecito, and Malibu. Paul is also considering future projects in Texas, Montana, and Shanghai.
