Francesco Mozzati is a Principal in SCB’s San Francisco office, providing design leadership for the firm’s multi-family residential and mixed-use practice.  Francesco is focused on fostering a collaborative, creative, and dynamic environment that is committed to design excellence. He is responsible for setting the vision and overseeing the development of complex projects from concept through completion.

Francesco’s work is noted for a strong understanding of the relationship between architecture and the public realm, and the impact design can have on creating active and vibrant places. He is strongly influenced by context, which can be seen in the development of Ward Village, a 60-acre mixed-use district in Honolulu where he has directed the design of four residential towers. As the lead Master Architect, Francesco is overseeing the relationship between public realm and the vertical build out. He directed the design of four towers that have a distinct, authentic, and modern interpretation of the Hawaiian vernacular, including the award-winning Anaha, A’ali’i, The Park Ward Village, and Mahana. In parallel, Francesco has been leading the design for several notable projects in Los Angeles including Atelier DTLA, one of the first residential towers in downtown, Alloy, a mixed-use residential and office development in the city’s Arts District; and 1050 La Cienega, a new residential tower in the Carthay neighborhood.

In addition to his work in the US, Francesco’s past experience working as an architect in Italy and Spain has given him a unique international understanding of the architectural industry. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and holds a Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Architecture from the Politecnico di Milano in Milan, Italy. Francesco is an active member of the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) San Francisco Chapter, as well as the organization’s San Diego Product Council.
