Pfau Long Architecture, Ltd. is a nationally recognized firm, based in San Francisco, distinguished by its passion for the craft of environmentally sensitive, award-winning architecture. Since its founding in 1991, Pfau Long has drawn creative inspiration from understanding the human experience of space, light, and materials in its wide range of project types. Our body of work reflects a passion for celebrating the ephemeral qualities of materials, the collaborative processes that result in their assembly, and the impact of their experience in space. The result is a livable and comfortable modernism suited to our time and expressing the personal aspirations of each client.


Our firm’s collaborative design philosophy embraces a shared quest with its clients for timeless solutions that resonate with how they live, work, play, and learn on a daily basis. Principals, Peter Pfau, FAIA, LEED AP and Dwight Long, AIA lead a staff of 14 highly talented individuals, maintaining personal and hands-on involvement with each and every project.


Pfau Long is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and is strongly committed to implementing sustainable design and construction practices in all of our work. We believe that sustainable design is about creating an appropriate, thoughtful, and well-conceived building design that is comfortable and naturally inspiring for its inhabitants, doesn’t waste resources in its construction or use, and provides lasting value.
