Founded in 1990 by the principals, Ron Sutton AIA and Elizabeth Suzuki AIA, our recruiting efforts have resulted in a team of professionals who possess a wide range of experience consistent with our emphasis on quality design and service to our clients.

A close client alliance coupled with the diverse experience of our associates, leads to an intense exchange of ideas, a meticulous search for solutions and an innovative approach to your design.

Environmentally sound design has long been a hallmark of the firm, commencing with thoughtful site planning for natural ventilation and passive solar gain, and further incorporating sustainable features throughout the project.

This experience enables the firm to provide clients with the very best in design and project management in many areas of the country – or world! Locally, our firm has designed custom residences in Marin, Napa, and Mendocino, as well as Atherton and Carmel Valley. We have also completed projects on the islands of Kauai and Hawaii, and designed homes in Jackson, Wyoming and Incline Village.

"For every location, the design of each home originates from the vision of the client and the spirit of the surrounding site."

Hawaii Although we are lucky enough to be located in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are well-versed with specific considerations for such diverse climates as that found in the Hawaiian Islands and other tropical locations. Having lived on the islands for 8 years, Ron Sutton is familiar with the construction techniques to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes, as well as the humidity, insects and local customs. Designing for maximum enjoyment of the tropical weather includes proper site placement to capture prevalent breezes and protection from the sun.

Vineyard & Wine If you own or are looking for wine-country property, we can offer some very specific expertise. As the Owner of a 180 acre ranch located in Mendocino County, Ron Sutton is familiar with the requirements of a vineyard property. Bells Echo Ranch & Vineyard is situated in its own private valley along Feliz Creek and among the Pacific Coast Mountains. This is the heart of the acclaimed North Coast Mendocino Wine Region. The mature vineyard consists of 50 acres of Bordeaux varietals; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot, Malbec, and Syrah. Ron can offer his insight from his experience of working closely with the winemaker: from pruning, watering, shoot, leaf and cluster management, all the way to harvest. The most exciting happening of 2007 was to see the release of Bells Echo Vineyard designated wines, so if that is your goal, Ron has experience with that as well.
