Based in the heart of Marin County, Polsky Perlstein Architects is a boutique
architectural practice specializing in the design of custom residential projects. We
believe that great design flows naturally from strong relationships, a refined process and a copious amount of experience.

Architecture is, at its heart, a people business. Driven by the sincere belief that our work makes a positive impact on the lives of our clients, our goal is to create homes that fit them “like a glove.” We are grateful to enjoy warm, long-standing relationships with our clients and collaborators. In our practice, our clients become our friends and – sometimes – our friends become our clients.

Our design solutions grow, first and foremost, from function. We take the time to get to know our clients, and how they want to live. Our diverse portfolio reflects our carefully considered response to site, neighborhood context, and the unique set of opportunities and challenges inherent in each project. Working hand-in-hand with our clients, we have designed hundreds of thoughtfully-designed projects throughout Northern California, as well as in the Lake Tahoe area, Oregon, Idaho, Hawaii and Connecticut.

The design and construction of a home is a journey, and we expertly guide our clients
through the process. Our design approach is inherently three-dimensional, taking full
advantage of design software to build virtual architectural models, which give our clients a clear understanding of the design from beginning to end, and enable us to smoothly progress through the various phases of design, approvals, documentation, permitting and construction. Clear communication and shared understanding allow us to design and build cost effectively.

In over four decades of practice, we have earned a reputation for both our design
excellence and our relationship-driven approach, and we look forward to the
relationships we will continue to build in the years to come.
