BEST OF HOUZZ (DESIGN): 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 BEST OF HOUZZ (CUSTOMER SERVICE): 2019, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 HOUZZ ADVICE GURU: 2016 Studio S Squared Architecture, Inc. was founded on the belief that client involvement and a positive relationship is the key to a successful project, and we are committed to a team-oriented approach in all phases of the design process. We believe in the value of collaboration within our office, with our consultant team, the building contractor, and most importantly, the owner. When you hire Studio S Squared Architecture, you partner with a diverse, dynamic team of experts who will help guide you through the entire design process, from initial concepts all the way through construction. We consistently deliver outstanding design that makes the most of your budget—along with innovative ideas that transform your space into something truly extraordinary. Our practical experience covers the entire spectrum of projects, from small commercial remodels to large corporate campuses, from single family homes to multi-family buildings. The common thread in our buildings is the belief that architecture can lift the spirit, and that great relationships make great architecture possible. Great architecture involves more than using our expertise to navigate governmental approvals. Clients look to us to take their ideas and elevate them into a design uniquely tailored to their site, personal, and business needs. We work to keep the lines of communication with clients open at all times to ensure that we can craft a building that is uniquely their own. With this approach, it is possible to create a “signature” building with every project we design. Our firm is committed to conservation and wise use of our natural resources, and minimizing our projects' impact on both the built and unbuilt environment. We also commit a percentage of our billable hours every year to local non-profits in need of pro bono or reduced-cost architectural services.

Schwartz and Architecture is an award-winning architecture and interior design studio founded on a commitment to a highly interactive design process with our clients. We pride ourselves on architectural solutions of clarity, economy, and grace, but always within the pragmatics of a client’s budget, schedule, and needs. In fact, negotiating these often-competing, real-world demands inspires our creativity. Our design sensibility is characterized by the choreography of movement, light, threshold, and material textures to create spaces that unfold into complex yet unified environments. We are particularly adept at managing complex permitting and construction processes and working with fixed schedules and resources. The ethos of Schwartz and Architecture is a reflection of its Founder + Principal’s unique combination of interests and skills. Neal Schwartz completed dual masters degrees in Architecture and Public Policy from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Kennedy School of Government respectively. The combination of these two disciplines establishes the foundations of our practice: the creativity to explore our client’s needs in ways that surpass their expectations, and a devotion to rigorous management of complex design, permitting, and construction processes. In addition to heading the firm, Schwartz has been actively involved in teaching for 20 years, most recently as Professor in Architecture at the California College of the Arts (CCA).
