In Their Own Words:
David Baker Architects is a progressive architecture firm located in San Francisco and Oakland that creates acclaimed buildings in urban environments. Formed by David Baker in 1982, DBA is known for exceptional housing, creative site strategies, designing for density, and integrating new construction into the public realm.

DBA has a passion for and deep understanding of the power of humane and respectful environments to transform neighborhoods and elevate the lives of individuals and families. We design thoughtful places that allow communities to thrive and that serve as a multiplier of good—that is, that enable or support further engagement, connection, or community benefit.

DBA Leadership Team

DBA Principals David Baker, Daniel Simons, and Amanda Loper lead the firm with the support of seven talented Associates, four Senior Architects, and a highly engaged and collaborative creative staff.
