Paulett Taggart Architects (PTA) is a full-service architecture firm founded in 1986. We are committed to projects that make a significant contribution to society and focus primarily on the design of housing and community facilities in San Francisco. In all our work, from private commissions to community structures to supportive housing, we apply the same sensitivity to the urban fabric and the experience of the space’s interior. Our passion for social responsibility is matched by our commitment to architectural excellence, and the firm has received over 40 design awards recognizing the quality and impact of our work.

Our design approach has evolved out of a deep understanding of the architecture, topography, social fabric, and quality of light unique to the Bay Area and results in a modern architecture that is particular to its place. We work in an interactive way. Our aim is to design buildings that are rational, valued, and enduring—the logical outcome of the specific needs of our clients and the unique quality of the locale. The architects we hire combine design strength, technical expertise, and strong management skills, enabling our team to produce durable and sustainable buildings that exceed expectations.
