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.
I am in the business of creating authentic architecture that fits naturally in the surroundings and harmoniously with the site. Over the years my focus has evolved to include greater promotion of environmental sustainability through design and innovation, with a strong emphasis on balancing the aesthetics and functionality. Where I differ from other architects and designers is in my effort to create buildings that not only solve my clients’ needs, but also enhance their lives by utilizing creative solutions that allow for uniquely attractive spaces. I find that, most of the time, a little extra effort is all that is necessary to generate a building design that will merge form and function into an amazing result. A sustainable “green” building that is unattractive is not an option for me. I need, and seek, extraordinary clients that are looking for, and require, extraordinary projects.

I'm a British, BA(Hons) Architecture graduate with a background in architectural practice and real estate, now living in Glen Ellen, California. I've been focused on residential design since 2013, working with clients on a variety of projects, from simple staircase handrails, to kitchen / bathroom remodels, and full residences / guest houses. I pride myself on working closely with my clients from the beginning until after the project is completed, providing as much knowledge, opinion, coordination and handholding as needed. I am glad that I am able to call all of my clients my friends. Behind me is a large network of professionals who are ready to support my clients in our project ventures, so please get in touch so we can put them to work for you. Projects that I enjoy most: Efficiency of space, gorgeous finishes, and open plan living.
