Over the years, the name
Architectural Dimensions
has become synonymous
with getting things done.

Architectural Dimensions (AD) is an award winning, full-service architecture, planning, and program management firm.  As a certified small, local business with an established office in downtown Oakland for over 30 years, AD’s work has played an impactful role in numerous Bay Area communities by helping to create a sense of communal vitality that empowers people to live, work, and thrive, both socially and economically.


Over the years, our work has expanded throughout California and the United States, and spans numerous industries. AD’s extensive and proven experience includes the delivery of complex projects involving architectural design, agency management and entitlement, land-use & master planning, program/project management, facility design and management, information management (database design/document control), developing design/build solutions, and construction management and administration. With a truly extensive portfolio of diverse projects, we have the experience necessary to provide competent, creative, and enriching solutions on your next project.


Our practical approach to delivery involves defining a project’s purpose and need before creating an efficient, effective work plan that is in alignment with your goals and objectives. Accountability, communication, and integration are at the core of our work, and we have established sophisticated project controls and document management systems that enable us to track and manage all facets of large projects. The benefit of this is optimization of performance across the program, both functionally and technically. Our approach also emphasizes continuous communication throughout the life of a project, and facilitates collaboration at every step of the way, allowing us to build the strong partnerships key to making real progress.
