What differentiates us is our approach

Design ability, budget, and schedule accountability are of central importance for our architectural services, but we go beyond that with the value that our team brings to the process. Each project is unique, with its own specific set of requirements and conditions to incorporate into the final product. Our process is solution-based, and we take an innovative approach to develop quality designs that are appropriate and responsive to the project requirements. Our design ability brings value to all our projects and centers on providing innovative solutions that implement sustainable design, functionality, and aesthetic qualities that are a paired response to our client’s budget, needs, and objectives. This value can enhance your asset and be the final product that you the owner can take pride in. That is the value of innovation.

Performance, experience, and trust are the foundation of our firm’s reputation. We are a known quantity, take pride in the things we do, and are proven to take care of our client’s interests. Our team drives effective project management so that the process is easier for our clients. Client relationships are a hallmark of our practice, and they come back to us for our reliable performance. We focus on appropriate design, technical ability, management, and communication. In addition to being capable, knowledgeable, and effective, we center on being responsive, personable professionals with strong team leadership skills.

Bob Corbett established our architecture, planning, and design firm in 1985. Brian Spector, a resident of Santa Cruz County since 2000, aligned with Bob in 2014 to assume the leadership of our firm. We implement decades of experience and have a depth of expertise in planning, design, and permitting for properties and facilities. We are selective of the projects we take on, so that we may focus our energy and give each project the attention it needs to be successful. We have intentionally kept our firm at its current size so that each project receives the direct involvement of our principal architect and key staff throughout all phases of services. We consistently work on projects in the Monterey Bay Region, San Francisco Bay Area, and throughout California.

As your architect, we look forward to assisting you in actualizing your optimum project.
