Our Values and Expertise


Persinger Architects puts people at the core of our mission. Buildings aren’t erected for their own sake–they’re constructed to serve the people they shelter and have a very real impact on those people long after the construction teams have packed up their tools. We are committed to creating a collaborative and responsive experience for each and every client, providing the personalized services of a smaller firm while delivering the dependability and exceptional design of a large firm.


An integral part of Sonoma County since 1997, Persinger Architects has completed hundreds of functional, sustainable projects for large scale educational, industrial, commercial, and residential clients across California. While our state’s landscapes inspire us, we also grapple every day with the hard realities of drought, flooding, wildfires, resource/materials shortages, and other issues that affect us and our communities deeply and personally. We are committed to resolving these challenges with integrity and transparency, always keeping the environmental, economic, and community impacts top of mind.
