David was one of three architects we meet with when preparing to build on our land just outsides of Nevada City. His process to understand just what WE!! wanted was amazing, plus his interest in solar design and SIPS made the difference for us. It was clear to us when we received the first rendering of the house that we had chosen the right person. Now that the house is finished and we are comfortably living in it, we would with no reservation recommend David to anyone

We focus on architecture as functional art. As Solar Environmental Architects, we embrace a wide scope of appropriate technologies to design buildings that respond to the individual client’s needs, the site, the climate and the regional character.

Solar Design

As an early pioneer in passive solar design, David has designed solar architecture for virtually all climate zones and has authored three books which have helped define the principles of architectural climate design and the types of architectural solutions which are the mainstream concepts today.
