? Great view of a significant influence in California architecture ? Remarkable record of a family business across generations ? An architectural firm that has shaped the Bay Area for over a century It would be hard for many people to envision a family business that would be passed on to successive generations who each, in turn, was charged with not only maintaining the quality and integrity of their work, but also in raising that standard. This architectural firm has endured for over a century creating homes, office buildings, campuses, and even an airport, by never losing sight of the individual values of each. The interest in great architecture started with the original tradition of homes that were built within the landscape and has carried through to the present.
