DNM Architect is a San Francisco Bay Area based architectural firm, offering a full range of architecture services from planning and programming through design, documentation and construction administration for new custom homes, remodeling, commercial and educational projects.
Some firms promote a particular design style while others emphasize service. We identify ourselves as “advocates for the building.” We begin each project by listening (and we never stop). We analyze the site and other constraints and opportunities. We introduce our own experience and expertise, balancing the competing challenges of function, style, budget, codes, context, schedule, energy efficiency, and dozens of other considerations. And, we work together with the entire project team to insure that the project meets our clients’ immediate and long term goals.
With experience in both LEED and Green Point Rated projects, we strongly advocate green, sustainable, energy-efficient building materials and methods as a means of reducing the energy required to construct and operate buildings. We have recently completed a 180 point certified GreenPointRated new home in Sonoma and have a new LEED Platinum house in San Francisco.
