Known among clients as the best-kept secret in the Bay Area design world, Arcanum Architecture provides high quality design, attentive personal service and tremendous talent, skill and experience to every project. Specializing in Commercial and Residential design, Arcanum’s expertise ranges from the broad stroke of master planning to the smallest architectural detail. We thrive in the design process and strive for excellence regardless of the project size, type or scope.

Whether a building is commercial or residential, Arcanum believes it should complement the neighborhood or region. We visit each potential building site and research each community to discover its unique qualities and characteristics. This knowledge is combined with the use of natural materials and unique colors to produce a highly desirable space. Arcanum’s architecture is a creative combination of the personalities of our clients and the uniqueness of the community where it is located.

Arcanum is not a reflection of a single design philosophy rather it is a design studio which relies on the collaboration between designer and client. As a result, Arcanum remains extremely selective in the collaborative process. Dedication to service and to quality of design has set Arcanum above the competition. The result has produced successful, long-term relationships with our clients. We pride ourselves on the fact that most of our business, since our firm was established in 1996, has come from repeat clients and referrals.
