Stott Architects is a diversified architectural practice with clientele located throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Our diversified design expertise includes pre-K through university level educational facilities; multi-family residential projects; commercial and community projects. Stott Architects has experience with newly constructed ground-up buildings, renovations and remodels, and adaptive re-use projects. Underpinning every design is a focus on user health, building resilience and resource conservation.

The firm’s approach is hands-on, client focused and  collaborative. Key to the success of this process is developing a mutually shared design vision early in the process -- one that the client and architect return to for guidance as they develop meaningful architectural environments, connected to their place and time, and to a client’s individual needs, vision and budget.

Stott Architects' strives for design clarity, alongside the cohesive integration of building systems and  construction methods to ensure straight-forward, cost-effective  architectural solutions. We enhance this approach by paying close attention to  detail, to material expression, to simplicity of architectural form and  line, to natural light and air, and to healthy and energy-conscious ways to design buildings, striving always to create the most with the least.
