We collaborate with our clients, consultants and colleagues.


We advocate for the public, our clients, and the profession of Architecture.


We research in support of design. We believe that the best designs are discovered.


We educate our clients, the community, our profession, …and ourselves.


We make sustainability an integral a part of our practice.


Working with school districts improving facilities for students satisfies our greatest desire to make the world a better place.

Thus our primary focus is on California School Facilities. We provide full service Architecture, Construction Management, and Program Management services.

With our full service model, use of third-party Construction Managers is generally not necessary, leading to significant overall project savings.

Our specialty is K-12 educational facilities. We provide unique services to California School Districts. Our services range from very small to very large project sizes. We provide traditional design services as well as a full range of Program Management and Construction Management services. We are especially adept at navigating the various agencies and related requirements for public school facilities.

We have developed millions of dollars of funding applications (typically done by a separate grant writer) for which we have served as the primary grant writer, designer, agency consultant, and construction manager. We follow our projects from conception through completion.
