Philosophy

Building upon my roots in modernist architecture and landscape, I emphasize the melding of interior and exterior spaces. Residential and small commercial architecture and landscape projects are within my wheelhouse.

Work Experience

Owner and Principal Mary Barensfeld, AIA, LEED AP, has worked on residential architecture projects in the Bay Area since 2006, starting her own firm in 2013. She has had the good fortune to work for the well-respected Bay Area architecture and engineering firms of Craig Steely Architecture, Andrew Mann Architecture, and EndresWare Architects and Engineers.

A licensed architect in California and Pennsylvania, Mary was awarded the following awards at the University of Pennsylvania: Arthur Spayd Brooke Memorial Gold Medal in Architecture, the American Society of Landscape Architects First Place Prize to graduates, the Eleanore T. Widenmeyer Prize in Landscape and Urbanism, the Will Morris Melhorn Fellowship Award in Architectural Theory, and the T-Square Club Fellowship Architectural Design Award.
