LEVY ART + ARCHITECTURE is an architecture and design firm located in the Potrero Hill design district in San Francisco. We believe that architecture is the thoughtful synthesis of concepts, materials and their assembly. Our work is inspired by a commitment to research as a basis for the design process. This knowledge, embodied by form, structure and light, defines spaces that transform our daily experience and influence the way we live. We approach each project as an exploration that is technically innovative and challenges assumed conventions. Sustainability and site specificity are integral to the practice, informing spatial relationships and building systems. We engage in an inclusive process, working with our clients and the community to discover and realize the potential in every program. We work on residential, multi-family, hospitality and commercial projects, and take a holistic approach to design by solving problems with modern, innovative ideas. Our company culture is collaborative, fun and dynamic. We also run an art gallery next to our studio called SPACE 151 where we curate art shows and events.
