About Us

Schwartz and Architecture is an award-winning architecture and interior design studio founded on a commitment to a highly interactive design process with our clients. We pride ourselves on architectural solutions of clarity, economy, and grace, but always within the pragmatics of a client’s budget, schedule, and needs. In fact, negotiating these often-competing, real-world demands inspires our creativity. Our design sensibility is characterized by the choreography of movement, light, threshold, and material textures to create spaces that unfold into complex yet unified environments. We are particularly adept at managing complex permitting and construction processes and working with fixed schedules and resources. The ethos of Schwartz and Architecture is a reflection of its Founder + Principal’s unique combination of interests and skills. Neal Schwartz completed dual masters degrees in Architecture and Public Policy from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Kennedy School of Government respectively. The combination of these two disciplines establishes the foundations of our practice: the creativity to explore our client’s needs in ways that surpass their expectations, and a devotion to rigorous management of complex design, permitting, and construction processes. In addition to heading the firm, Schwartz has been actively involved in teaching for 20 years, most recently as Professor in Architecture at the California College of the Arts (CCA).
