About Us

Just as an artist becomes recognized by the intricacies of his brush stroke and interpretations of light, so too does an architect, by the manner in which he juxtaposes architectural elements and composes a view. Distinct in the subtle attributes of understated elegance, an Island Architects home embodies architecture as an art form. Headed by Drexel Patterson and Tony Crisafi, this accomplished team has been creating time-honored residences of quiet luxury throughout Southern California, nationally and internationally for more than a decade. Known for floor plans that seem to flow effortlessly in a continual unfolding of spatial events, Island Architects creates homes that embody the essence of their clients’ dreams with their own discerning vision. With their eye keenly trained on the ultimate context of the finished product, their homes appear to emerge as though they had always been an integral part of the environment. While the quality of their work stands on its own merits, Island Architects is a 20 person firm whose allegiance and reputation within an elite circle of equally talented builders, subcontractors, craftsmen and artisans, lends an enormous amount of credibility and confidence to any discriminating client embarking on the process of building their home. From Villas in the Virgin Islands to estates in the rolling hills of Ohio’s horse country, to a grand old lodge in the Tetons and a pastoral country estate on the shores of Lake Geneva and back to La Jolla, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe, this firm consistently produces some of the nation’s finest homes.
