Architect Lorin Hill and associates emphasize pragmatic and creative design solutions to variety of design opportunities throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Every project presents its own unique challenges, and we find something compelling in every project, no matter what size. Excellent design only reaches its full potential if it can be effectively translated into a completed construction project that meets scheduling and budget goals. We promote a pro-active approach aimed at achieving and maintaining good "chemistry" among all players in the process: the client, the design team, and the contractor. Our particular strengths include responsiveness, thoroughness, communication and flexibility. We provide a continuum of services that take a project from the broad overview (a master plan) to the specifics of construction detailing and specifications, with active involvement in the construction process. We are committed to environmentally sustainable practices in our work and often incorporate the Build-it-Green GreenPoints Rating System into our projects. First and foremost, the renovation of existing structures minimizes the waste of resources. We promote the use of locally-sourced, renewable and recycled building materials as well as building systems and site design that favor water and energy conservation. Improved indoor air quality and the reduction of contaminants contribute to healthier living environments. Our primary focus is residential projects, with an emphasis on high-quality design and creative, pragmatic solutions. Much of our work involves the comprehensive renovation and expansion of existing homes. We draw upon the inherent strengths of a building to produce improved living spaces, healthier environments, and added real estate value. Other project types include commercial tenant improvements and mixed-use developments.
HDA is a renowned, dynamic firm with an unusually diverse range of experiences. Our success has been based upon innovative solutions that come from thoughtfully responding to our client, project constraints and inspiration of the context. The firm integrates a very broad background into each project with the knowledge that the most fulfilling design is in the poetic resolution of a set of spatial needs. The success of HDA projects is based upon an open approach where design develops and evolves through a rich process. Sketches, models, 3D imagery and diagrams all form sources of inspiration and communication essential to realizing a project's full potential. Clients are afforded the opportunity to engage the design process through an approachable way. We customize the meetings and presentations in whatever speaks most clearly to them.

Tim became an architect and a member of the AIA then founded Impluvium Architecture in the year 2000. Impluvium – a term from ancient Rome – is a courtyard with a water feature. Allowing living space to flow and interact between the indoors and outdoors is something that Tim has pursued not only in his professional experience but also through his extensive travels in Asia and Europe. Voula (his wife) is from Greece and their frequent extended visits to Europe have broadened his appreciation of traditional design developed over generations and how it can be applied in a contemporary context. This foundation has developed not just by visiting as a tourist, but by walking the ancient ruins, traditional villages, contemporary museums and various projects while living there for a few months of the year. Tim also has a number of modern projects as well including Impluvium's new home / office under construction. See www.AllyLocal.com for Impluvium's current projects (Tim also created AllyLocal.com as a business network site). It's not just studying history first hand or experiencing modern buildings, however, Tim has discovered that projects must be inspired by the owner’s life and must also be informed by the context of the site for the project. Instead of presenting something to a client and convincing them that his concept is what they are trying to achieve, Tim draws out the design from the owner’s experiences and travels. This makes the process of design an interactive and educational experience for everyone involved in the project. Architecture is creating something that has meaning and can last. Being an architect is not about handing over a project and moving onto the next one – it is about making sure that the project will be cherished and cared for by its owners and everyone that experiences it for years and even for generations.

Mattingly Thaler Architecture is an architectural, planning and interior design firm with a broad range of projects and experience. Our firm was founded in 1988, and we pursue two key goals: excellence in design and the provision of the highest level of professional service to each client. Our experience includes high quality custom homes throughout Northern California, high schools and middle schools, dormitories, cafeterias and libraries, residential and commercial interiors, retail and office space, galleries, restaurants, office space planning, theaters, and children's playhouses, along with custom cabinetry and a broad range of custom furniture. Our design process is collaborative: we emphasize a close working relationship with our client, the project team and the local community as the project progresses through each phase of the design process. Instead of architecture being valued for its ability to adhere to a single style or for its use of the latest trends, we believe that the richness of each building and the beauty of any space will be found individually, according to the recognition, acknowledgment and response to the desires, needs and aesthetic concerns which are integral to each design and every act of building. Each project is seen as a partnership between the client, the architect and the specific context. While we intend our architecture to work in the world of art, we do not impose pre-conceived solutions or pursue eccentric innovation for its own sake. The design process shapes and is shaped by the client's ideal program, the specific needs for both now and planned for the future, the geographic location of the project and economic constraints placed on the construction. We are dedicated to the resolution of the inherent contradictions in life and to finding a true balance between desires and reality.
