About The Firm
A holistic approach to the built environment.
Design and construction. Beauty and functionality. Indoors and outdoors. SweisKloss organically integrates these divergent elements into the built environment to create singular spaces that nurture body and soul.
Based in Santa Monica, California, we’re a full-service boutique firm specializing in building design, interior design and construction. Since we believe that every project, site and person is unique and deserving of our utmost attention, each step of the design + construct process is thoughtfully examined and artfully executed to celebrate the individuality of our clients. This holistic approach, in which we all work synergistically from conception through completion, allows every project to achieve its true potential.
About Abeer Sweis
Abeer is passionate about all things design. While she also has intimate knowledge of construction and structural engineering, it is her innate ability to look at a potential project and see myriad design possibilities that has helped make her company a success.
Abeer knew at a young age that she wanted to become an architect. When she was 10, her family moved from her native Amman, Jordan to Los Angeles, where she went on to receive her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Woodbury University. While working as a designer at a small architecture firm, she acquired the technical knowledge and business skills to build her own company. In 1998, she started her own design firm, and in 2006 she partnered with her husband Jeff Kloss to create the construction side of the company, fulfilling their design + construct vision.
Since 1995, Abeer has taught at UCLA Extension, Cal Poly Pomona, Pierce College, Woodbury University and other Los Angeles area design schools. A leader in her community, she is a distinguished past president of the Kiwanis Club of Santa Monica and an involved parent of two rapidly growing children.
