We are a progressive, enterprising and civic-minded architecture firm. We work with clients to build urban communities where people can experience unique moments within the universality of everyday life. We enhance livability through unorthodox thinking, progressive ideas, a scaled approach and inspired designs.
Vertical retail, retail developments and modular housing projects put us on the map and earned Lowney Architecture design acclaim. Our design excellence and technical expertise – in buildings and beyond to streetscapes and city blocks – now extends to four market sectors – housing, commercial and civic/education.
Beyond our AIA, Golden Nugget and other industry awards, we are proud of journey from bootstrapped beginnings in 2003 to booming present and sustainable future: San Francisco Business Times ranks Lowney Architecture among the 2015 Top 30 fastest growing companies in the East Bay and among the Top 100 in Northern California. We are proudly located in the City of Oakland and committed to helping our community realize a sustainable and healthy collective future.
