Butler Armsden Architects
Butler Armsden designs result from a true collaboration between architect and owner. We begin with our clients' visions and then translate them into refined architectural concepts through an exceptionally personalized design process. The results are houses which not only are responsive to their owners' needs, but also exceed their expectations with the highest standard of architectural design. In our projects we strive for the optimum use of materials, architectural forms, space and light to create architecture that will contribute to and fit seamlessly into its surroundings. Butler Armsden Architects is based in San Francisco.
