What our clients' are saying...
We have worked with dpa on a number of projects. What sets dpa apart from other architects we’ve worked with is the quality of the work and the effort made to strive for construct-able and functional designs without compromising aesthetics. Dpa is also pleasure to work with.
MICHAEL EMDE, STRUCTICS STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING
DPA is extremely responsible and understands the city/client requirements very well. He has worked in many commercial projects that required someone with a lot of knowledge and patience to accomplish the goal. DPA always meets deadlines on time and really understands his job. I highly recommend DPA for any commercial projects large and or small due to the creative ideas delivering solutions and positive attitude towards the rest of the design professional team.

I had the great experience to work with DPA on projects in Southern California. DPA’s attention to detail, professionalism, progressive point of view and passion for his craft of architecture and our job was above and beyond. I would highly recommend DPA and they would be an amazing asset to any project and I would look forward for them to be my Architects on any size project.

– SCOTT DAVENPORT, SENIOR ASSOCIATE, LINWOOD ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES
I became acquainted with Dwight Patterson in architecture school. That experience grew into a design collaboration of ours on several occasions. From room additions, to residential remodels, and eventually to a four unit residential development project known as The Point Loma Four, Dwight has always exhibited a keen sense of design and problem solving. Dwight’s architectural career has taken several paths, including residential, religious, commercial and municipal design. As I have observed his designs in those varied architectural arenas, I have been impressed by the architectural design creativity & integrity with which he has met the demands of the client’s program, along with a respectful relationship to the environment. I would recommend Dwight Patterson, without hesitation, as a innovative and considerate Architect.
