We provide solar power consultation and design for commercial and civic entities.


One does not need to hire an architect in order to build or remodel a home. However some homeowners prefer to use professional services provided by an Architect.

Everything Else: Civic, Commercial and more

Our commercial work is currently focused on urban “interventions” or “real urbanism”. We are interested in serving civic entities and small businesses.

About What We Do...

We are celebrating our Five Year Anniversary this month. We were founded on May 2nd, 2008. Each year we celebrate Founder's Day with a paid holiday day off in recognition of the great efforts of our dedicated staff. We are also remembering John Nolen with our annual John Nolen Day holiday. John was and continues to be a mentor to our Founder, Mark Bartos. John dedicated his life as a caretaker of the Campbell Union High School District's facilities. He is our role model and represents everything we aspire to be. He taught us much about working together collaboratively, respect for others, honesty and genuine dignity.
