Formed in 1982, DBA is known for innovative housing, creative site strategies, healthy design, and integrating new construction into the urban realm.

He believes that being connected with the community for which we are designing is essential to the creation of meaningful buildings. Focused on place-based architecture, Brett is a key figure in DBA’s hospitality practice.

Since joining DBA in 2011, Brett’s work has spanned hospitality, affordable housing, market-rate housing, and more. Stand-out projects include the Harmon Guest House in Healdsburg, California; the Dr. George W. Davis Senior Building in San Francisco; Fillmore Park, affordable homes for first-time buyers in San Francisco; Potrero 1010—a mixed-use, mixed-income community and public park in San Francisco; and 388 Fulton, a micro-unit building that won a 2018 AIA San Francisco Honor Award.

Currently, Brett is working on a range of innovative hospitality and housing projects, including the HH Residences in Healdsburg; the Parkside Hotel in Birmingham, Alabama; Hotel Sebastopol in Sebastopol, California; and a large mixed-use artist and hotel co-living development at the historic California Cotton Mills in Oakland, California.
