Aaron Green Associates - Firm Profile

Profile of Firm
Aaron G. Green Associates is a comprehensive design and service-oriented business dedicated to architectural craftsmanship. The firm offers the traditional palette of Basic Services for Architects, yet we extend ourselves further than most in our ability to offer “in-house” capability to perform various special services which are normally handled by “outside” consultants for the project. These include Master Planning, Space Programming, Interior Design, Custom Casework Design, Special Equipment Design, Color and Furnishing selection, Landscape Design, Environmental Graphic Design, model building, and presentation renderings. These disciplines are employed to produce a unified harmonious result that is aesthetically satisfying, as well as more easily discernible and understood by its users and the community at large. In 2001, the office of Aaron G. Green Associates celebrated it 50th year in continuous service providing our clients with dedicated professional architectural and planning services. It was a sobering time as well, as Aaron G. Green Associates, Inc. June of that year marked the passing of our founding principal, the gifted Aaron Green, FAIA. Aaron Green 5 Third Street Suite 224 represented the embodiment of a complete Architect and creative individual, a complement to his mentor, San Franisco, CA 94103 Frank Lloyd Wright. His efforts were tireless and accomplishments innumerous to mention in any brief. 415 777.0530 voice 415 777.1014 fax Three years later, the firm continues and flourishes, inspired by Aaron’s tireless belief and faith in an admin@agaarchitects.com Architecture based upon rational design principles, appropriate use of construction technology, and humanistic values can serve to positively enhance the quality of individual’s lives. In that respect, the firm of Aaron G. Green Associates now continues to build upon our legacy, developing an architecture based upon principles established and practiced by such antecedents. If we have a specialty, it is the ability to create uniquely original, thoughtful and functional design solutions to challenging problems, whether they be influenced by complexities of building program, client needs and site conditions or restrictions of budget. There has never been an emphasis on any particular building type, which suits our strength to create afresh as befits the project and challenge. Our team of Associates are seasoned professionals with 10 to 35 years of real experience in the design and construction of a wide variety of public, municipal, religious, educational, and residential projects. These are unique, successful solutions which continue to serve the needs of each Owner, as well as the community, and have withstood the test of time.

Aaron Green Associates - Philosophy

Philosophy of Practice
For over fifty years, Aaron Green Associates has cultivated a professional dedication to an architecture that can exert an important, positive influence on the individual’s working and living environment by the innovative quality of design for each project undertaken. An important guiding concept of the firm is that fine architecture must first suit its client’s functional and economic program of needs and must also provide a living environment by both its interior and exterior environmental design of sufficient aesthetic importance as to improve the daily living conditions of its users. Our professional service is a dedication to preservation of the human factors in all programming and physical-facility design considerations. The “people” to be served are our ultimate clients and we conclude that we must in fact, guard their interest. Human needs must be kept in full view and balanced with the objectives of any project.
Aaron G. Green Associates, Inc. 5 Third Street Suite 224 San Franisco, CA 94103 415 777.0530 voice 415 777.1014 fax admin@agaarchitects.com

We believe that the Architect must recognize a responsibility to the community and to the anonymous majority viewers as well as the immediate users of the building he/she designs. We make a special effort to insure that each of our works is an asset to the visual as well as functional environment of its community. Our professional endeavor is to produce buildings of a high architectural standard which manifest a timeless, lasting quality that can either generate a dynamic and individual visual statement, if desired, or can be creatively blended into the fabric of its context. Our work manifests a sensitive environmental consideration relative to siting relationships and orientation as well as preservation of natural conditions and ecologically important features. We have historically pursued a design philosophy of concern for energy conservation through a wide variety of active and passive systems as may be easily discerned from a study of our executed projects. We strive to create fresh interior environments incorporating excellent acoustics, visual and functional spaciousness, energy conservation with optimum climate control and concern for ideal non-glare lighting conditions. We have demonstrated in completed projects that a creative combination of the elements of color, space, light, and sensitive combinations of materials and furnishings can provide an inviting character and enhance the human-use purposes of the building, serving both employees and visiting citizens.

Aaron Green Associates - Project: McAndrews Residence

McAndrews Residence Pebble Beach Heights, California

The clients were a retiring couple, relocating to the West Coast following professional careers in the Midwest. Their children had already established their lives outside the family's home. As a result, the McAndrews desired a spacious informal new home for small scale entertaining as well as quiet time together for reading and study. The residence was placed within an evenly sloping one acre site containing attractive massings of mature Monterey Pines. The McAndrews Residence is two levels arranged as a linear sequence of spaces angled against the main axis and sheltered by a single enveloping gable roof. Both floors are linked at the mid-level entrance foyer, a generous light-filled volume surrounded by the dramatic interplay of pitching roof planes and of light and shadow. The entrance foyer is flagstone paved as well as landscaped; both extend well beyond the glazed wall of the residence to form an inviting garden between the house and two-car garage. The Main Floor contains the activity spaces of Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen linked under the expansive cathedral ceiling. The spaces all open onto a southwest facing deck, looking over the tree-filled lot and to the view beyond. A massive stone masonry fireplace provides the focal point for the Living Room; a triangular portion of the southwest roof plane projects beyond the ridge to the chimney and forms a patterned clerestory window opening. The Lower Floor contains the Master Bedroom and Bath, an Office/Study and Guest Bedroom, all of which open onto a ground level terrace that faces southwest. The McAndrews Residence is wood-framed, primarily stucco on the exterior and painted gypsum board interior with wood trim of either redwood or oak. "Carmel" type stone masonry is used both inside and out. The roof is sheathed entirely of copper. The clients requested that Aaron Green design and/or select all furnishings for their new home, choosing to liberate themselves of their lifetime collection prior to starting a new California lifestyle. The residence, sheltered parking and accessory storage enclose approximately 4,200 square feet.
