BEST OF HOUZZ (DESIGN): 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 BEST OF HOUZZ (CUSTOMER SERVICE): 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.

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.

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.
