William Duff Architects
Rejecting trend in favor of building in harmony with site and program, William Duff Architects is a firm devoted to customized, modern design. “Architecture that lives well is our hallmark,” says founding principal William Duff, who, with head of residential projects Jim Westover, is responsible for some of the most notable homes across the Bay Area. “We work in many vernaculars, but good design is good design,” Westover adds. “For us, that means warm, contemporary spaces that are attuned to the client’s lifestyle.” Their team approaches architecture with deep respect for process. Duff says, “Communication—specifically listening and encouraging dialogue—is a signature of our practice.”
"Equal to the end product is the experience of getting there—that piece matters to us."
