CCS Architecture, with offices in San Francisco and New York City, is dedicated to excellence in architecture and interior design. Since its inception in 1990, CCS has designed a diverse range of public and private buildings and interiors. The firm has gained international acclaim for the architectural and commercial success of restaurant projects, while the uniqueness of residential, commercial, and mixed-use projects has met with an unusual degree of owner satisfaction and media praise.

CCS seeks to explore opportunities of maximum potential and express them at a scale appropriate to each project. The work is firmly based in the modernist idiom, where innovation and creativity are balanced by common sense and experience. Our staff is committed to sustainable design and has been involved in a number of projects that have either integrated sustainable architecture principles into the design and/or achieved LEED certification. The firm is known for creating projects with exceptional spatial and material qualities, and for providing outstanding professional service.

Cass Calder Smith founded CCS Architecture in 1990, and Barbara Vickroy joined in 2006 as the Director of Interior Design. The principals direct a staff of 20 in two offices.
