Tim Ward and Larry Young founded the firm in Truckee, California in 1977. They then established a Bay Area studio (Lafayette, Ca.) in 1984. Today both continue to create stellar work for residential and mountain resort clients as well as urban, commercial and public works projects.
What we do
The staffs at both studios are experienced in providing comprehensive architecture and planning services for a broad range and scale of residential and commercial projects. Our work generally falls into three areas – custom homes, resort and hospitality, and public agency. This provides us with a huge range of clientele: homeowners, developers, and local, state, and federal agencies. They come to us for our architectural expertise that spans custom homes, multi-family developments, resort and hospitality projects, commercial and mixed use projects ranging from themed restaurants to light industrial uses, and administrative offices, fire stations, and visitor centers for public agencies. Finally, our planning experience includes land-use feasibility studies, vision plans for envisioning development potential, master plans, specific plans, and assisting clients obtain development entitlements. These planning services often segue into providing architectural services for the project.
