Tradition

Stark Designs ARCHITECTURE has it’s roots in the architectural traditions of California. Firm founder David W. Stark is a native Californian and, after graduating college in 1983, cut his teeth working his initial years of practice during Silicon Valley’s construction boom. Silicon Valley has always been know for innovative, creative solutions to any endeavor with it’s forward thinking and entrepreneurial spirit.

David worked within the High-tech building boom designing Corporate Campuses and High-tech Industrial Complexes. A new vocabulary of development was also birthed in Silicon Valley within the Retail Industry. Small retail buildings were being developed on almost every corner and Promotional and Power Retail Centers were meeting the growing needs of the California population. David again worked within this new retail phenomenon designing many small and large retail developments.

David founded his initial firm in 1988 and brought in two partners a few years later to form another successful firm. A new firm Stark Designs ARCHITECTURE was born in 2009 and continues David’s successful traditions of the past 28 years. It is a firm based on traditions of Innovative, Creative & Sustainable design solutions.
