Since our founding over 70 years ago, Steinberg Hart has evolved from a San Francisco Bay Area regional architecture practice focused on custom homes and California living to an international architecture, planning and interiors practice with broad expertise in higher education, urban mixed-use, residential, arts and culture, hospitality, government, and civic projects. Today, the firm has offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Austin, New York, and Shanghai with 50 registered architects and 118 employees worldwide.
At Steinberg Hart, we’ve built a culture that is as unique as each of our employees, encouraged by the belief that diversity and equity are keys to true collaboration. What unites us all is design: it is a constant exploration, an opportunity to learn, grow, innovate, and push boundaries. We work in studios across our seven offices, creating teams for our clients that are uniquely suited for each project and melding our firmwide expertise with intimate local knowledge. This approach allows us to arrive at authentic designs that both challenge the status quo and are deeply rooted in the communities they serve.
Grounded in our three core values of design, relationships, and change, our firm’s focus is on bringing award-winning and highly sustainable designs from sketch to reality, resulting in tangible, memorable, and impactful architecture. We take pride in staying true to our values by putting them into action and making them an integral part of all that we do.

We share a deep belief that design matters. It affects people in profound and unexpected ways. Through design, we connect people with place, creating identity and memorable experiences that build community, enhance business, support learning, and improve the cities in which we live.

Architecture is about people. We care for our people and we develop long-lasting relationships with our clients and collaborators. By engaging and supporting the organizations and causes that improve our lives, we empower our team members to become leaders and trusted partners in the communities we serve.

We are entrepreneurs at heart. Our firm is ever-changing, evolving, and transforming through an innovative approach to the practice of architecture. Our experienced and dynamic team challenges the status quo with a focus on creating spaces where people can achieve their best.
