For every location, the design of each home originates from the vision of the client and the spirit of the surrounding site.

Founded in 1990 by the principals, Ron Sutton AIA and Elizabeth Suzuki AIA, their recruiting efforts have resulted in a team of professionals who possess a wide range of experience consistent with our emphasis on quality design and service to our clients.

A close client alliance coupled with the diverse experience of our associates,leads to an intense exchange of ideas, a meticulous search for solutions and an innovative approach to your design.

Environmentally sound design has long been a hallmark of the firm, commencing with thoughtful site planning for natural ventilation and passive solar gain, and further incorporating sustainable features throughout the project.

This experience enables the firm to provide clients with the very best in design and project management in many areas of the country – or world! Locally, the firm has designed custom residences in Marin, Napa, and Mendocino, as well as Atherton and Carmel Valley. We have also completed projects on the islands of Kauai and Hawaii, and designed homes in Jackson, Wyoming and Incline Village.
