Meet the Team
Principal Cassandra Mettling-Davis has been a licensed architect since 1994. Before establishing CMD Architecture, she worked in San Francisco firms specializing in preservation architecture ranging from major civic projects to residential restorations. Cassandra also worked on many projects requiring knowledge of ADA (Americans with Disability Act) access requirements.
Upon graduating with high honors from the University of California at Berkeley in 1985, she worked for an architecture firm that specialized in energy conservation and code compliance. Today, she utilizes the skills developed throughout her career to create projects that are energy efficient and include sustainable materials and techniques. Her background in architectural preservation is reflected in her respect for historic building elements and designs. She emphasizes the character defining features of the original building, while making 21st century improvements for her clients and their families.
Cassandra is a sixth generation San Francisco native. Her great-great grandfather, James Weir, was a Victorian house builder in San Francisco in the late 1800s. She and her husband, Steve Davis, live in Miraloma Park on the slopes of Mount Davidson in San Francisco.
