Every project in the SB Architects Portfolio is a one-of-a-kind creation-a unique, sophisticated and contemporary expression of the culture and nature of its particular location. SB Architects has established an international reputation for excellence and leadership in the planning and design of global hotels, resorts, destination communities, as well as large-scale multifamily residential and urban mixed-use projects. With offices in San Francisco, Miami and Shenzhen, we are an international firm providing the responsiveness, creativity and tailored experiences of a boutique design studio. With five decades of expertise, we offer the technical capabilities to successfully deliver projects of all scales from initial concept through construction. With a focus on collaboration, we encourage an openness to new ideas and creative interpretation. We believe that thoughtful design positively impacts our daily lives, from site design to the architectural detail. We consider the design process to be a journey, with collaboration, communication and relationships being at the center of our practice. Our mission is to not only create alluring and successful projects, but also nurture the shared passion and vision that allow for a rewarding journey for the entire team. Our origins as a firm continue to inspire and inform our design process, and we pursue solutions that are committed to the human, financial and environmental sustainability of our projects. Designed to enhance every aspect of a user's experience by reflecting the local environment, our team honors each site by designing solutions that are inspired by the regional vernacular, local materials and unique sense of place inherent to each property. Leading by example, all of SB Architects' principals are LEED Accredited Professionals, as is much of our professional staff.
