San Francisco

SCB’s San Francisco office has a distinct California vibe. Made up of Chicago transplants, west coast natives, and a host of international designers, there are many voices (and accents) included in our process.


For an office that’s younger than some Silicon Valley tech engineers, SCB San Francisco is prolific, making major contributions to skylines, neighborhoods, and campuses up and down the California coast since opening its doors in 2007.

SCB San Francisco is located in the Financial District and organized into two studios, each working across a multitude of sectors. Our multifamily residential practice, one of the largest in the country, has helped to address the critical need for housing in cities such as San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles by bringing thousands of apartments online, with thousands more on the boards. We’ve also exported this design expertise to Hawaii, where our work continues to redefine island living in an urban setting. Our campus environments team is helping colleges and universities grow through designs focused on student success and collaborative delivery methods. And our aviation practice is taking off, with active projects at SFO and LAX. There is never a dull moment at SCB San Francisco. The office hosts a wide variety of activities, giving everyone the opportunity to get to know their fellow designers. From weekly office-wide design meetings and sketching groups to a city-wide 5K and bocce league, there’s a way for everyone to grow and have some fun.
