Our firm: Established in 1995 is located in Petaluma, California. We’ve been providing complete architectural services to clients in Northern California and beyond for the past 26 years.
We’ve designed a variety of projects, new and remodel, traditional and modern, small and large. From peeled and chinked log construction to corrugated sheet metal structures, we think of ourselves as versatile architects. What’s best for the setting, client program, budget and lifestyle is what we pursue – with you.
Collaborating closely with our clients, our goal is to design a living space, both interior and exterior, that maximizes the potential of your site, whether new or existing – while minimizing your project’s impact on the environment. From site planning to the smallest of details, material and palette selections – we provide you and your project, commitment, care and experience.
