Core Difference

We want you to understand the unique value we bring to your project that sets us apart from other architectural firms.

Custom Design

Because every client and site is different, every project of ours is unique. Each project requires a custom approach to resolve challenges, develop appropriate solutions and meet specific needs. For this reason, while some firms are known for a particular signature style, Michael Rex Architects are skilled at designing a wide range of styles and building types. To see one of our designs completed in its setting is to understand and appreciate it was designed by Michael Rex Architects.

Permitting Process

Michael Rex Architects has been in business in Sausalito since 1984 and strategically focuses on specific Bay Area cities and towns, giving us a depth of expertise and knowledge in those areas of Northern California. We are well known and respected for our keen ability to secure design approvals, even for the most complex projects. Clients who know what a challenge this part of the planning process can be seek our services.

Balancing Quality with Budget

While most firms typically provide services for either the speculative or custom market, we offer both, so our focus on budget and luxury go hand in hand. From working with speculative clients, we have learned how to effectively achieve quality without overspending. Even our “high-end” clients benefit from this experience.

Employee Retention and Experience

With seven employees, we are small enough to provide clients with customized, personalized service, yet large enough to team up when necessary to keep a project moving smoothly and on time.  Our staff has an average of 13 years with Michael Rex Architects.  Members of our senior staff have been with the firm for over two decades, a rarity in the industry.

Our Clients

We don’t expect our clients to have a strong knowledge of architecture, but we need them to be involved in the design process and decision making. While we love what we do, we also enjoy sharing the design experience with our clients.  It is this type of collaboration that produces our best work. Knowing this, we welcome our clients’ participation.
