Profile

Portola Valley Town Center

AT SIEGEL & STRAIN ARCHITECTS, we are passionate about design, sustainability and preservation for projects that have a public mission. Our design practice is guided by several principles:

  • Great places tie buildings to site, climate, and culture;
  • Stewardship of the environment is a human and architectural imperative – beauty and sustainability are inseparable;
  • Simple, elegant, well-crafted design has staying power;
  • Close collaboration leads to better buildings and stronger communities.

We have worked with an extraordinary group of clients over the last 30 years on a wide variety of projects – new buildings and renovations, adaptive reuse and historic preservation projects, and master plans. Many projects have been recognized nationally and locally with awards for design excellence, for innovation in sustainability, for thoughtful historic preservation, and for research that sets new standards for our profession.
