The Firm

SSA is a full-service architecture firm whose work includes commercial design, residences, interior and landscape design.

The Practice is experienced in designing a wide range of building types including: office (ground up, market-ready, commercial tenant improvement), residential, culture, leisure, civic & healthcare. We adopt a ‘Think Tank’ philosophy at every level, to enable design and management to collaborate & contribute our expertise.

A synchronistic approach is employed at every level, to enable design and collaborate with various teams. SSA aims and believes in providing quality work in a fast-paced construction industry that exists here in the San Francisco Bay area.

We design places that build community, contribute to a sustainable world and enrich the users. At SSA, we believe that beauty lies in simplicity and in the details; a building is a string of events belonging together. Every space at any scale deserves careful evaluation to identify its potential to serve the occupants in the best possible way.

We believe that a good design solution strikes a creative balance between problem solving & aesthetics. We align our solutions with the objectives established during the predesign phase of the process. We propose innovative concepts for appropriate function, flexibility, value, image & effect on business.

We are committed to providing all clients with services that thoroughly explore and develop each project’s potential. From initial meetings and programming through construction documents, construction management and final turnover, we recognize that each client’s requirements and project goals deserve decisions that provide the most thoughtful and comprehensive long-term solutions.
