Zack | de Vito Architecture + Construction is a multi-disciplinary design office and architect-led construction company providing architecture, interior design and construction services. We are one of the top design focused DesignBuild firms in the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, Napa and Sonoma counties, and the broader reaches of Northern California. Our architectural projects include custom residences and renovations, restaurants, wineries, commercial and retail tenant improvement projects. Our projects have been extensively featured in publications and exhibitions as well as receiving numerous awards. Our furniture work is also in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The design partners are husband and wife, James Zack and Lise de Vito.

Zack | de Vito Architecture + Construction has a staff with diverse backgrounds and experience with degrees in Architecture, Furniture Design and Fine Arts. We are architects with years of hands on experience as builders and furniture makers, possessing a broad knowledge of materials and construction, giving our projects a unique and noticeable attention to detail and craft.

Zack | de Vito Architecture + Construction philosophically and aesthetically follows the modernist traditions, but we are not stylistic, we work very closely with our clients to satisfy their goals and desires. We believe that each project is driven equally by the needs and contributions of both the client and the architect. The best projects are products of collaboration. Licensed as both architects and contractors, with experience in the office as well the job site, gives us a comprehensive view of our projects. While our emphasis is on design our projects are always buildable. With our design/build delivery process we can seamlessly deliver a project from the initial ideas and concepts to the final coat of paint.

While we are design focused we are also well versed in the complex and often confusing permit process in San Francisco and the surrounding communities. We have experience in many Peninsula towns, Napa and Sonoma counties, and many other wine Country communities.
