The Team


The Owner:


Women (Inga Klingauf) with red brown hair and wearing a pink scoop neck long sleeve shirt standing in front of out of focus greenery.

Inga Klingauf grew up in North Germany and studied architecture at University of Braunschweig, graduating with a Diplom-Ingenieur Architect (comparable to a Masters in Architecture). She spent a year in Dublin, Ireland, before moving to the Bay Area in 2009. Her design philosophy speaks to her European influences, and she is a strong believer in the philosophy espoused by the famed architect Mies van Der Rohe: “Less is more.”

Inga is passionate about ensuring that each client ends up with a design that both conveys their unique style and addresses their specific needs. She approaches the design process as a conversation, and actively encourages client feedback.


Design Assistant:

Women ( Nilloo Behnami) with brown and blond curly hair wearing a 3/4 length puff sleeved sweater with princess cut neck line in front of an out of focus background.

Niloo Behnami is an Architect graduate from the school of architecture from Azad-Tehran University in 2014. She has several years of residential design and remodeling experience. Niloo’s passion is for design and practical yet beautiful spaces. She joined SurroundYou Design as an Architectural Drafter/Designer in 2021 and will be assisting with all things drawing-related.
