Serving the Bay Area since 1976

Home Design

New Homes, Additions, Remodels

We have over 40 years of residential home design experience. Designing for functionality as well as custom aesthetics, we establish a close working relationship with every client to achieve a clear understanding of project goals, objectives, and requirements. We have a long standing knowledge and understanding of the local municipalities and their respective processes to deal with design review, setbacks, variances, easements, privacy, etc.

ADU Design

Accessory Dwelling Units

Also known as Granny Units or In-Law Units, an Accessory Dwelling Unit a.k.a. ADU is typically an independent second dwelling unit on a property. These units can be attached to an existing house or detached as a separate structure and can be constructed on most lots zoned for single family residential use. With the housing shortage in the Bay Area, ADUs can provide housing for single workers, serve as a guest suite, provide additional income, or simply be an extended living area.

Development Feasibility

What is allowed on my property?

With substantial Architecture Review Board experience, ACS Architects has the ability to add value to any project in three dimensions, not just on an excel file. Partnering with land owners and developers to evaluate pro forma and create unique design investment packages rooted in the community, we are able to provide feasibility studies and feedback that can help shorten the design review and planning process with greater efficiency.
