Suba is a Bay Area Architecture and Interior Design firm focused on connecting and collaborating with you, our Clients. We listen. We communicate. In fact, the back and forth process with you in design is essential for getting it right the first time. Each new project offers a unique set of circumstances and scope of work fueling creation of an original design. We don't do "cookie cutter" here. No matter what style of home you own or desire, we work closely with you to interpret your vision and set achievable goals. We then team up with Engineers, Contractors and the building trade in guiding your project through the permitting process and final construction. We take every project seriously and we make it fun.
The firm, Suba, was created by Architect and Interior Designer, Suanne Bassett. She has over 20 years of experience in the design field. Her love of light, color, texture and indoor/outdoor living is evident in her designs.
Suanne holds a Masters degree in Architecture from the University of California @ Berkeley and undergraduate degrees in French and Sociology. She became a licensed Architect in New York in 1993 and then in California, the next year in 1994. Suanne worked on large public building projects including an IBM training center in New York, the Dallas Museum of Art, a hotel in Singapore, a Mid-town Manhattan high-rise and Prada retail boutiques before starting her own firm in residential design. This remains the focus of her work today. Although trained as a Modernist, Suanne enjoys working with clients on original designs in all styles.
