Founded in 1990 by the principals, Ron Sutton AIA and Elizabeth Suzuki AIA, our team of architectural professionals possesses a diverse range of experience, always emphasizing quality design and exemplary service. We develop a close alliance with every client, leading to an intense exchange of ideas, a meticulous search for solutions, and an innovative approach. One of our principals follows every project, from site analysis to occupancy. We facilitate the permitting process and act as a liaison between our clients and their contractors.
Environmentally sound design has long been a hallmark of Sutton Suzuki Architects. Our site planning considers natural ventilation and passive solar gain, and incorporates sustainable features throughout. Our expertise in the selection of materials results in esthetically pleasing, energy efficient structures. We design outdoor spaces where people want to spend time, with patios and gardens that are protected from prevailing wind and harsh sun. Our versatile approach takes advantage of the visual qualities of a site, while meeting the challenges of local building ordinances.
Sutton Suzuki Architects’ more than twenty-five years of experience enable us to provide clients with the very best in residential design and project management. We have designed residences in Marin, San Francisco, Napa, and Mendocino, as well as Carmel Valley. We have also completed projects on the island of Kauai and homes in Jackson, Wyoming.
We bring a fresh and unique perspective to each design.
