Our aim is to create beautiful places that will be loved by the people who use them. We are guided by the philosophy of wholeness where every part of the structure contributes to a coherent whole. We design functional spaces to support and embrace our clients’ needs, the larger community, and the environment. Sustainability and historic preservation are incorporated into our projects as a natural outgrowth of wholeness-based design.
Saikley Architects has done over 300 projects in 35 cities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our design spans modern to historic; single family homes, multi-family, childcare centers, commercial and industrial site development.
Saikley Architects is a collaborative of experienced architects and supporting staff who work closely with our clients and each other to give detailed attention to each project.
We are a small enough firm that principal Alexandra Saikley leads the design on every project and is in close contact with all of our clients. At the same time we are large enough to get projects done quickly and bring the benefit of different architects’ skills to our projects.
Our ongoing relationships with contractors, engineers, fabricators, and artisans, as well as city and county officials, many of whom we have worked with for years, enable us to address our clients’ needs effectively.
We are currently doing projects with budgets of $500,000 and up.
Saikley Architects was founded in 2003. Our office is in Alameda, California.
