S+D is led by partners Russell Shubin and Robin Donaldson. Russell and Robin are both licensed Architects and always collaborate on project strategy and other key aspects of project design and execution. With offices in both Culver City, CA and Santa Barbara, CA projects are organized as a team effort, led and coordinated by an assigned project manager and project architect. The offices are equipped to support in-house architecture, design, and visualization.
S+D considers itself not just an architectural firm, but a progressive and design-minded company with a free and open studio atmosphere where creative experimentation is encouraged, while maintaining logistics and discipline of budget and schedule; critical to effective and collaborative business relations. This provides a dynamic tension leading to imaginative breakthrough solutions in form, materiality, graphics, and interior organization strategies.
