We are often asked what it is that makes our firm stand apart from what is admittedly a rather crowded field. When you partner with us, the first thing you get is a local architect well known in the community, who has lived in the great city of Oakland for 18 years and has been practicing all that time. This gives us a strong base of knowledge of the local regulatory agencies, their specific and varied needs, and that knowledge is very valuable when crafting a project for review.
Secondly, you get a practical designer. Daniel Swain was first a carpenter and home builder before returning to University to pursue his degree in Architecture. That experience gave him a unique perspective on the construction process that is often not found in other architects.
And third, you get a designer and builder who will care for your home as you do.
Value its aesthetic and spirit, hear your needs and wants for your project, and combine those elements to create best project for you, your home and your budget!
