Within the cultural context of each project site, Robert Mowat Associates brings together a synthesis of architecture, environmental sensitivity and creativity to achieve the goals of our clients.
Our design process creates moving and unique environments, delivering our client’s ideas, schedule, budget and agency involvements to successful solutions. Our memorable spaces reflect a broader environmental, social and regional context.
We excel at listening and creating designs appropriate for each particular client’s needs and requirements. Robert Mowat Associates collaborates closely with our clients and their team. While acknowledging each site as unique, the firm acts as change makers designing with innovative forms and traditional materials. We bring concepts of sustainability and xeriscaping along with air and water quality solutions to our regional designs. Our projects are typically composed of bay friendly solutions utilizing recycled and local materials to create innovative forms for social spaces. California native plants, passive and active solar techniques along with water conservation solutions are used to meet our client’s varied design challenges.
Projects bring change to a place or community. We have developed a keen awareness of the interconnected nature of projects, environment and people. We focus on finding these connective elements that change brings to a place or community. Our firm graphically articulates these interconnected systems of people, place and site and brings them into a physical form.
Following a strong design philosophy for the future, our vision and traditions remain focused on creativity, consensus and transformation. We continue into the future providing design excellence for human experiences while never forgetting our environmental responsibility to each site.
