SGPA Architecture and Planning

SGPA is a California-based architecture firm that transforms everyday environments into dynamic and memorable places.

Our design and planning team pools expertise in retail, wellness, education, and housing to create viable and sustainable mixed-use communities. From our offices in San Diego and San Francisco, we collaborate with clients throughout the western United States. Our practice is rooted in creativity, effective management, and technology, supporting our commitment to enhance the quality of people’s lives through smart design.

Our 50-person firm serves the Bay Area, Southern California, and the western United States through two offices in San Diego and San Francisco. Our areas of architecture and planning expertise include shopping malls, urban infill projects, mixed-use town centers, multifamily housing, senior living, medical clinics, memory care residences, campus bookstores, K-12 school modernization, parking garages, and civic parks.

We’ve located our offices in the heart of two very different cities, soaking up the urban landscapes of both northern and southern California. Because we live in the neighborhoods we serve, we feel personally connected to our work through the lives of our families and neighbors. See our office locations.

We believe that collaborative design leads to thoughtful choices and elegant problem-solving. That’s why our entire staff operates as one seamless team. Learn more about the people behind the designs.
