Studio 300A Architecture is primarily focused on design coherence and in place-making. We don’t believe that buildings are stand-alone products to be placed on the land, rather they are a highly responsive occurrence that is a unique and unrepeatable result of the people who shape and use them, the climate, terrain and the community they continually interact with. We are striving for "somewhereness". This may sound a bit heady or theoretical, but the feeling of a well designed building is quite the opposite; it’s a very primal, solid and visceral experience—and when it’s a part of one’s daily life it can’t help but to underscore the importance of that life. One other thing that is important to us is the notion that good design is not so closely linked with big budgets. In fact, as the years pass we can often see an inverse relationship between the two. Though based in Marin County, CA, we are focused most in small houses through modest means.
