Established in Montecito since 2004, I have devoted my practice exclusivle to the Montecito and Hope Ranch areas .My expertice lies in crafting imaginitive solutions for difficult sites. Due to the unique zonning and planning conditions in Montecito, I have sucessfuly carried projects thru all phases of review from local homeowner review boards thru appeals to the County Board of Supervisors. Ultimately my goal is to create high quality buildings, appropriate to their settings while at the same time being extremely functional. We offer a wide range of architectural services - from planning and program development, through design and construction documents, to on-site inspection.

What Our Client Say?

“Tom Smith designed and helped supervise the building of our new house, following the destruction of our home by the Tea Fire in Nov. 2008. His listening, creativity, and on-site hands on ”build-to-plan” coordination with the General Contractor and Owners was exemplary. Tom’s skills and personal committment to achieving the best sustainable home resulted in minimal change orders and contributed greatly to the project being completed on time and within our insurance replacement budget. Tom’s design has recieved praise from all who have seen it. Please contact me if you wish to see the finished product and ask any questions you might have about the project”
