Hofmann Inc is a multi-faceted design and development company based in Santa Barbara, California.
The firm is built on the foundation of sustainability, mobility and adaptability. We strive to work with clients from different backgrounds, cultures, and surroundings. It is our belief that architecture is a worldwide community. We are excited to offer design services to clients worldwide.
As our belief that sustainability is a mere starting point for all successful design solutions, 100% of our architectural staff are LEED accredited professionals (a nationally recognized green building rating system). Great design can be classic, great design can be modern, great design is timeless.
The Hofmanns began their creative existence with architect Matthew Hofmann. Together with his partner and father, Wally Hofmann, they lead a team of more than a dozen broad-based professionals and craftspeople.
“Creative development is about our clients, not ourselves,” says Matthew. “We go beyond listening to client’s desires and wants. We work to understand who our clients are – their lives, passions, and purpose.”
Wally, who brings 30 years of media experience to the father/son team, believes that a successful project, whether it’s a hotel or a vintage airstream renovation, “Is about creating a sense of place that is deeply rooted to the individual – truly worth of being called home or office. We create a design that is as much a reflection of an individual as one’s own personality.”
“Design must blur the distinction of interior and exterior space by listening to the influence of site and context,” adds Matthew. “A residence should be as much of a representation of where it is as to who lives in it. We carefully assess our client’s needs then combine our creative energy and organizational skills to realize our client’s visions.”
The Hofmanns also believe that great design transcends style. “It can be modern, it can be classic. Great design is timeless,” adds Wally.
Hofmann Architecture develops projects that explore innovative methods of design that are both beautiful and affordable.
We look forward to sharing in the creative development of your next successful project.
