Architecture + Planning + Landscape

Designworks, located in northern California, has been practicing sustainable design for more than 30 years. Our experience consists of a wide range of project types and scales that include residential, commercial and community planning.

As a core group of architects and designers, we collaborate with others in the design field. This allows our firm to be flexible and responsive to a range of project types, with team members selected to match specific project needs. Using this approach, we have designed and successfully managed projects with the highest level of professional service.

Known for our humanistic and environmental philosophy, we search for appropriate technologies that reduce energy needs and use renewable resources, with the goal of a healthy and sustainable future. We strive to create beautiful structures and landscapes which are well-crafted, economical, appropriate in their context, and provide a nurturing environment for the human spirit.
