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 to improve 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.


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.
