My foray into architecture started in high school when I decided to expand my family's Santa Barbara home into its large unfinished attic. My parents and neighbors were a little alarmed when they came home from work and saw that I had cut a large hole in the side of the house for a new door and stairway. For the next four summers I worked for contractors and electricians so that I could learn the skills needed to finish the attic into livable space. At UC Berkeley, I studied architecture and civil engineering. After college, I worked in construction and was licensed as a general contractor. For the past 20 years, I have been working as an architect on new vacation homes throughout Northern California and remodels/renovations in the San Francisco Bay Area. My goal as an architect is to help you make the architecture and construction process a conscious effort and to create a beautiful and functional environment, unique to your personality and reflective of your specific needs. Life is but a dream. With a slant towards Hindu philosophy, my mother would argue that life is pre-determined and that ultimately we have no control over our lives. I would argue that we have the choice to create beautiful environments, and I meticulously work through the details to ensure that your dream becomes a reality. My design etiquette is restrained and comfortable, not gaudy. I love light and large windows, natural materials, and expression of the structure. I gravitate to work that is made by craftsmen rather than machine, to elements and details from the 1920s and before. Thank you for your consideration in having me help with your project. Rob Kelly

Established in 1988 and located in Danville California specializing in custom home design. Designing new homes and addition remodel projects large and small. I have no particular style that I work in. I think any style done well will be timeless and show well for many years to come. My philosophy is it is your house and should reflect your taste not mine. What I like most about custom home design is that each project is different. With creative, quality design each client has a unique home of there own. With 30 years of experience of working with local towns and cities I can help clients get approval through design reviews and the permit process.

Working primarily on single family dwellings and remodelings, I enjoy working with people intimately connected with the buildings that they commission. As a consequence, many of my clients feel that their buildings originate from themselves and are thus authentic. I enjoy working on projects situated throughout the diverse landscape of the Bay Area, from dense urban settings to smaller towns to more rural settings. And I am challenged by the variety of social and political circumstances that the effort to built presents. I was trained as an architect and as a social psychologist. I am also a film maker of documentaries focused on the history and evolution of landscapes and buildings. <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://lymarch.com/videos_here.html">http://lymarch.com/videos_here.html</a>
