David Goldman Environmental Architecture is a small architecture firm focused on residential and commercial design in the Lake Tahoe-Reno area, the San Francisco Bay Area, and beyond. Our design process brings together the built environment and the natural environment, creating beautiful and exciting spaces that make the most of natural resources, blend aesthetically with the natural beauty of our area, and maximize client budgets and operating expenses.
Founder David Goldman brings more than 25 years of experience in award-winning residential and commercial design in the Tahoe and Bay Area—most of it focused on sustainable design—to your project. You can expect individual attention and personalized service, resulting in designs that are as energy efficient, healthy, and environmentally sensitive as you desire.
Residential architecture is often the laboratory for progress and innovation in the built environment. The scale and individual user requirements allow for an exceptional opportunity for exploration of ideas and concepts related to Architecture in general. At David Goldman Environmental Architecture we explore the relationship between architectural form and environmental design.
Commercial architectural projects have many design parameters that need to be satisfied. Building codes, planning guidelines, building use, budget and environmental concerns are just some of the issues that shape the design of the project. While some see these as restraints, at David Goldman Environmental Architecture we see these as design criteria that lead us to a practical and aesthetic design.
Progressive Environmental Design Solutions go beyond “Green Building” to create “Green Architecture”. The challenges of conserving energy and resources while providing a healthy environment should not be seen as restraints, but as opportunities to create architecture that expresses the solutions. After all, design is creative problem solving.
