building on a name—Pacific Cornerstone Architects Beyond the traditional meaning—a stone uniting two walls of a building— a cornerstone also denotes something fundamental or of primary importance. In 1994, the absolutely rock-solid foundation upon which Pacific Cornerstone Architects was founded was a strong and unrelenting sense of discipline and a ferocious dedication to our clients.

Tenacious. Driven. Downright Unstoppable. When it comes to keeping our clients’ best interests in mind, we hold those values as our mission.


staying in the picture Rest assured we’ll remain in the picture, from conceptual design through construction and grand opening, to provide attention to detail and make certain that program requirements are continually met.

We begin with an open dialogue that gets to the heart of the matter—determining how the space we are creating will ultimately be used. Since our clients are always at the core of PCA’s purpose-driven design, our process will ultimately reveal both the form and the function that will result in an evolving design where the two harmoniously co-exist. By factoring in the human element, PCA has developed a proactive partnering approach that allows us to fast-track the entitlement, design and construction processes. Of course, clients aren’t the only part of the equation. Early initiation of partnering among the client, brokers, developer, regulatory agencies, contractor and subcontractors has transformed a once daunting process into a cohesive effort where everyone is on the same page and aiming for the same target.


keeping in the loop You’ve heard it before, but at PCA we provide more than just lip service to the term principal involvement—we’re fully vested and committed to seeing your building project through to completion to your ultimate satisfaction. That means you’re going to see a lot of us.

Equally important is the way we empower our staff to develop creative solutions and be an active part of the design process. As a group of design associates, many of PCA’s staff share similar backgrounds in education and experience. What differentiates us is our ability to approach the table with open minds and clean slates on every new design assignment.

Finding like-minded people—both designers and support staff—requires a bit of a sixth sense in determining if they fit into our circle of professionals. We don’t have a specific litmus test that establishes eligibility, but a

passion for performance, an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, an ability to embrace both macro and micro perspectives and a

relentless quest for solutions are just a few of the

characteristics that epitomize the making of a great designer at PCA.


focusing on the big picture Although we are not engineers, our staff is driven to understand the inner workings of a structure—from the mechanical and electrical to security systems—so we know our buildings’ work as well on the inside as they are beautiful and functional on the outside. Intimate familiarity with system designer and contractor capabilities has enabled us to deliver projects to clients in record time.

Reducing surprises when plans are ready to be translated to “brick and mortar” allows us to keep a better eye on the details during construction and see that your building is delivered when you need it. This dedication and unrelenting sense of discipline is just as essential on a custom home as it is on a multi-million dollar commercial endeavor undertaken by PCA.


the cornerstone of enduring design Elemental to the success of Pacific Cornerstone Architects is an approach to design that balances technology with quality, functionality, and cost effectiveness—whether it’s master planning an entire business park, providing state-of-the-art design for technology giants, or envisioning an once-in-a-lifetime dream home. When PCA begins the design process we consider the ultimate end user as well as potential modifications that can be spurred by such unknowns as possible expansion and technological advances. Our goal is to create buildings in partnership with our clients that are flexible enough to serve their next generation of needs.

Although we don’t have a crystal ball on our studio floors, our rigorous attention to specific program requirements helps us to look toward the future and provide opportunities to accommodate an ever-changing marketplace while retaining real estate value.

The ultimate result is a building that reflects the image and character of our client and that stands the test of time.


Developing the Proofs While no architectural firm can claim they produce flawless plans, PCA has developed quality designs that reflect our clients’ style and personality—that also manage to satisfy their very specific functional needs—in record time. Going above and beyond through our philosophy of “leading by doing, rather than directing” has allowed us to accomplish what other firms would not consider taking on in order to move a project forward. What better proof can one present than hearing from our clients first hand:

“PCA is professional, flexible and creative. They are constantly proving their ability to get to the heart of the needs of end-users and provide clear, efficient solutions for our tenants. They are not only responsive to our needs, but bring great value to our clients as well.” Steve Scott, Senior Vice President Kilroy Realty Corporation

Although the projects presented here are just a snapshot of our capabilities, we invite you to place yourself in the picture and let us demonstrate how PCA can fulfill your architectural planning and design needs.

Alliance Pharmaceuticals San Diego, California This 33,000 sf corporate office project is based on a pure idealistic version of “open office”. There are no walls or furniture partitions and all of the furniture is on wheels. The components are all carefully arranged to orient the occupant’s visual access away from his adjacent neighbors and the ceiling system is designed to absorb ambient noise. Natural light and a view of the outside environment is virtually unimpeded. A wine and cappuccino bar serves as a hub for brainstorming sessions.

Pacific Cornerstone Architects Office Remodel San Diego, California Taking 8,400 square feet of existing space, the team at PCA completely gutted their offices to make it their own. Open office areas ensure a userfriendly, symbiotic relationship while enclosed conference areas ensure privacy when needed. A contemporary loft feel was achieved with open wood-beam ceilings and exposed ductwork and the building exterior was modernized with silver accents and clear glazing. Recycled products were used extensively throughout the remodel, including carpeting made from recycled fibers. PCA kept the “green theme� going with energy-efficient lighting and HVAC, droughttolerant plant material and deep-set overhangs for solar control.
