Scott came to DAA/A+V in 2009, having spent 12 years working on custom residential projects from New York, Maine and Wisconsin to Colorado, Idaho and California, many in ski and golf resorts. During his tenure with Armand LeGarduer Architects (NYC), Richard Nash Gould Architects (NYC), Vail Architecture Group (CO), Aleck Wilson Architects, and DAVID ARMOUR/ARMOUR+VOKIC, Scott refined his talent for designing projects in elegant proportion to their sites and regional aesthetics. Scott originally hails from Wisconsin, with a BS in Architecture from the University of Wisconsin and a Master of Architecture from Columbia University. In his downtime, Scott finds every opportunity to share his passion for outdoor adventure, great wine and the Green Bay Packers with his lovely artist/art-teacher wife and two sweet little boys.
Rande’s architectural career comprises custom urban homes and country estates, ranging from Northern Napa and Marin to San Francisco and Carmel Valley. He joined DAA in 2018, after 30+ years at Walker & Moody Architects, with a specialty that spans traditional to transitional design. Originally from Calgary, Rande found his way into architecture when a University of Oregon friend noted his penchant for design. From that point on, schoolwork became uber-inspiring and regular visits to San Francisco—always admiring the architecture—landed him his first job, where he locked in his passion for residential work. Ever since, he’s maintained a client-focused approach, ensuring homeowners’ personal satisfaction with project outcomes through close collaboration and attention to their needs. When not designing, Rande enjoys reading and biking and spending time with his lovely wife and two children.contact >
Johannes joined DAA in 2016 with 20 years of custom residential, hospitality and specialty design experience across the San Francisco Bay Area. During his tenure at BAR Architects, drA, and Jane Cee Architects, he honed his skill at beautiful, well-designed spaces and thoughtful, collaborative design dialogue. A graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s College of DAAP, Johannes grew up in a German household, which he credits with his passion for precision and focus and appreciation of materials, textures and details. "I want to make the world a little more beautiful" became his motto. When away from the office, Johannes feeds his wanderlust hiking, exploring and appreciating the many aspects of San Francisco and its region that make it such a special place to live. An avid food & wine aficionado, he and his partner enjoy preparing meals with friends, wine tasting, gardening and tending their grapevines in Solano.contact >
Kathryn brings a unique breadth of custom residential experience to her work at DAA. After earning a BFA in drawing, painting and printmaking, she refined her creative sensibilities—clean, uncluttered and intentional—working in Japan and travelling extensively throughout Southeast Asia. Inspired by this view of artful living, she returned to Chicago to earn a master’s in architecture and began her career with an area residential firm before heeding the call to San Francisco. Her career has since included renovating a storied Willis Polk home; designing then-experimental straw bale and rammed earth buildings; and designing and directing a myriad of custom residential projects across Northern and Southern California—Atherton, Los Altos Hills, San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, Napa and Malibu—and vacation homes in Aspen, Mexico and the Caribbean. Kathryn is licensed in California, with a LEED AP credential in green building.contact >

Post-graduation, she returned to San Francisco and honed her custom residential skills at Skurman Architects and BeauSoleil Architects before being drawn to join DAA by a particularly visible Victorian project. In her free time, Kat enjoys drawing and making art, hiking and other outdoor activities with friends. She is proud to be an active member of a micronation.
Omar joined DAA in 2021 (bio to come).
David remembers watching "This Old House" as a child and wanting to be an architect. The show came to underpin his professional belief in preserving the past for the future, yet not keeping the past fixed. He studied architecture at the University of Oregon, which included study abroad in Rome and Copenhagen and post-grad internships in Tokyo and Oakland. He went on to join Anshen + Allen Architects (SF) and then SB Architects (SF), where he worked on the Sonoma Mission Inn and a project in China. At Zak Architecture, his major design accomplishment was a residential golf club and spa in Kona, Hawaii, which would become a future point of connection with David Armour during his interview to join DAA in 2019. Always in search of the next adventure, David loves traveling and immersing himself in different cultures and languages. In his spare time, he enjoys oil pastel art, reading, hiking and exploring the outdoors with his dog, Tahoe.contact >
