Jared founded the firm of Jared Polsky and Associates, now Polsky Perlstein Architects, in Larkspur in 1982. The firm grew rapidly in its first few years and has remained a mid-sized firm since the mid 1990’s.
Jared has a deep interest in creating spaces that celebrate and enhance the lives of each of his clients. Every project presents a new challenge. There is no "office style" other than responsive outstanding design. He believes in an interactive design process that includes the clients and his very talented architectural team.
Jared brings more than 28 years of experience and expertise in design, wood frame construction, product specification and estimating. The firm’s philosophy is that all projects must be responsive to the client’s budget. He understands construction costs and believes that his clients must be carefully informed of the cost ramifications of their design choices. He also has an extensive background in the political process of architecture and has represented hundreds of clients at design review, planning commission and city council hearings.
Jared has been very fortunate to have attracted an exceptionally talented team of architects. His love of architecture, team leadership, efficient management and a keen interest in people has resulted in a very successful award winning firm. The firm strives to be community oriented, volunteering time at high school architecture classes and events and at local non-profit agencies.
Jared has traveled extensively all over the world soaking up the architecture and taking thousands of photographs. He lives in Larkspur with his wife and two sons.
