Solving complex challenges with creative and beautiful solutions
Common to each of our commissions is a relentless pursuit to understand our client’s goals, the site opportunities that make each project unique and the technical challenges inherent in architecture. Our studio engages in projects of all scales ranging from the detailing of a child’s preschool cubby to the site planning of a 25 acre urban industrial complex. We provide sensitive design approaches to sites as diverse as a wooded island site in the Pacific Northwest, to the renovation of a historic building in San Francisco’s Chinatown, to the master planning of urban industrial sites. Our projects seek to engage and improve how the built environment supports living–at work, at home, or in the community–with creative and beautiful solutions to complex challenges.
Our studio is located in a light filled former factory space in the historic Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. We are a collection of talented architects and designers who share a passion for design and a commitment to communication and teamwork. We understand the complexities of construction and the importance of collaboration with government agencies. We believe that sustainable design is not an option but an obligation. We are equally comfortable harnessing the power of technology, including Building Information Modeling, as we are to applying common sense solutions to design tasks. Our projects consistently respond to complex design problems, challenging sites, and difficult approvals environments to creatively exceed expectations.
