Santa Barbara - Bildsten Architecture and Planning

Our firm designs architectural projects that address owner needs and contribute positively to the local community.  We listen carefully to the owner's project goals and translate them into built form, improving the integration of buildings' indoor and outdoor spaces. We achieve sustainability by creatively re-using existing structures and devising innovative solutions, combining old and new elements in a contemporary context. Designing indoor and outdoor spaces encourages smaller built spaces and a healthier outdoor lifestyle in our year-round Mediterranean climate.
