MASON ARCHITECTS is a San Francisco Bay Area boutique architecture firm founded by Peter T Mason, AIA LEED, BD+C. The Firm has a highly experienced team specializing in 5 star hospitality, mixed use and high-end residential design.
DESIGN Whether for a ground-up project, a renovation, an addition, or an adaptive reuse, the Firm’s design is always influenced by the project site, its locale and culture; by the desire to create and honor unique, special and memorable places; and by the vision, financial and operational goals of the developer. In addition to engaging the creative traditions of the design discipline, valuing the qualities of light and atmosphere, and searching for distinctive materials, the Firm uses a best practices approach in an effort to minimize a project’s footprint. The Firm’s commitment to sustainable development includes using good design as a tool to minimize a project’s use of energy, water, materials, and its impacts on the local ecology, community and transportation infrastructures where applicable.
