Joseph Farrell says, “While the core of my practice has always been residential projects, my body of work ranges from high-end custom homes to renovations of existing homes. The focus of my designs is the creation of artful homes that are energy-efficient and environmentally sensitive. All designs strive to integrate natural light, air, views, landscape, and community. Joseph Farrell’s goals have always been to create homes that improve the lives of their occupants and to do so in an environmentally conscious way. Much attention lately has been placed upon sustainable and efficient design, giving birth to the “Green” movement. Green buildings are designed, constructed and maintained to enhance the lives of their occupants and to create healthy communities by being energy efficient, improving indoor air quality and conserving natural resources Cost Details: Typical construction costs for residential projects in the greater SF Bay Area ranges from $300-$600/sq. ft. For high-end custom construction, the costs can be $800+/sq. ft. Typical Architectural Fees can be 3%-6% of construction costs. Architectural fees can vary: $4,000-$8,000 for small addition/remodel projects, $8,000-$18,000 for medium addition/remodel projects and $18,000-$40,000 for major addition/remodel/new home projects.

As a Marin based Architecture firm we have worked throughout California to create unique and thoughtful designs. We also offer the option of creating a Design + Build solution through FORM Design + Build, our sister company. We have earned a hard won record of success in the design of single-family custom homes, entry-level home developments, and custom home communities in diverse environments ranging from the Bay Area, Santa Barbara, and Sacramento region to Baja California and the Turks and Caicos. We aim to be clear and direct in our communication with clients, who tell us one of the things they appreciate most is the interaction they have with our design team and the knowledge which is encompassed by each member of our team. All concerned, clients & designers alike, are full partners in the creative process. We use every means we can at every step of the design process to help clients “see” how an idea will play out if actually built. For instance, we use three-dimensional computer renderings as early as the Schematic Design phase. Just as important, our clients speak highly of our ability to come up with designs that are aesthetically pleasing, invariably innovative, and consistently budget conscious. Finally, we are committed to the notion that the present and most certainly the future require no less than sustainable building practices and the use of Green materials whenever they make good design, economic and environmental sense. We work hard to be informed about all of the latest sustainable technologies and Green practices so that they may be incorporated seamlessly into all of our projects. Although we have a range of built designs, those shown here tend towards a contemporary interpretation of traditional design. Our firm has done numerous projects including many small remodels that draw on local traditions including classic Californian Bungalow design as well as Craftsman and Prairie style houses. Although we try not to simply emulate styles, we strive to be true to the traditional tenets of these styles to avoid the appearance of merely copying. We have chosen a select few projects for the site but we would be happy to forward additional information and photographs of other projects to those interested in a more traditional design appearance.

Polsky Perlstein Architects is a Marin County- based architectural office. In partnership with our clients, we've created hundreds of thoughtfully designed projects throughout Northern California. We like to think of our completed work as being designed to fit the homeowners' lifestyles 'like a glove'. All designs begin as a carefully considered response to the site, neighborhood context and the Owner's wishes. Our portfolio therefore displays a diverse range of creative solutions, reflecting the unique resolution of each project's constraints and opportunities. Our process makes extensive use of perspective drawings (both computer generated and hand rendered) that promote a clear understanding of the ramifications of design decisions made through the course of the project. This enables us to smoothly progress through the various phases of design, approvals, documentation, permitting and construction, and to build cost effectively. Collaborative clients and a dedicated staff have made Polsky Perlstein Architects a vibrant and creative practice for over 30 years. We're motivated by our clients and look forward to culturing a close working relationship throughout every project.
