About Us

Frank/Architects was founded in 1993 by Tomas Frank in Berkeley, California. In addition to our work in the greater Bay Area, Frank/Architects has done projects throughout California, in the Czech Republic, and on the East Coast, alone or in cooperation with other architectural firms. We carefully think through the building systems of each project, especially the structure of the building. We take pleasure in addressing the technical challenges posed by older structures, and in developing effective ways to help them better serve the evolving needs of our clients. We were one of the first users of SIPs (structural insulated panels) in sustainable residential design. We consider the site and cultural context of each project and maintain its relationship to the landscape or the urban fabric. We do make our projects well designed, yet practical, trying to minimize the sticker shock so many clients encounter these days.
