PAULETT TAGGART FAIA, LEED AP, Principal & Founder

Paulett founded the firm in 1986 with the premise that excellence in design not only enriches the lives of the people who live in, work in, and use our buildings, but also enhances the public realm and surrounding community. Whether housing, a community facility or a private commission, Paulett brings to each project sensitivity and commitment to our client’s needs and a focus on making elegant buildings that endure. The quality of the firm’s work has been recognized by dozens of awards, and by Paulett’s elevation to AIA Fellow in 2007.

Paulett received her Masters in Architecture from Harvard University and her Bachelors from the University of Oregon where she was first exposed to energy efficiency and sustainability issues. She has taught at UC Berkeley and the California College of the Arts, and has been a member of a number of local organization including LINE (the journal of the American institute of Architects San Francisco), the AIASF/SFMOMA Lecture Committee, the San Francisco School District’s Citizen’s Advisory Committee, and the Board of Trustees of the Universalist Church of San Francisco.

ERIC ROBINSON AIA, LEED AP, Principal

Though he has practiced in locales as distinct as the Arizona desert and New York City, Eric’s work is unified by a passion for creating architecture that resonates with place and purpose. His interest in technical systems and considered approach to materials is revealed throughout a portfolio that includes custom residences, corporate interiors, cultural institutions, and multi-family housing. Whether using simple materials to poetically respond to an intense climate or integrating technical infrastructure into a refined space, Eric strives to find a beauty that emerges from honest, simple solutions. Within our practice, Eric is responsible for overall quality control and brings to each project a commitment to both design excellence and project delivery.
Eric graduated Cum Laude with an AB in Architecture from Columbia University, where he also earned his Master of Architecture degree. Additionally, he completed studies at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule in Switzerland and is a registered architect in California.
