Salerno/Livingston Architects is a forward-thinking professional design practice providing over 40 years of continuous service to clients throughout California, Arizona and Nevada. Our offices are located in the heart of San Diego's historic Gaslamp District. The current staff has worked on literally thousands of projects related to new construction, remodeling, renovations, and repairs in a variety of building types including Commercial, Military, Hospitality, Entertainment, Industrial, Residential, and Recreational facilities.

We also enjoy and advocate alliances and strategic relationships with other design professionals to deliver more talent, expertise, and resources to address special project needs. Among those are Gonzalez Goodale Architects of Pasadena who share and leverage their design expertise with Salerno Livingston Architects in the Civic, Municipal, Housing and Education market sectors.

A primary expectation is that we approach every project as an opportunity to advance sustainable design and development practices through the implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria. We have LEED Accredited Professionals on staff and a network of associated design consultants to help guide any project through a certification or equivalency program. Further, we have adopted the Architecture 2030 Challenge to reduce our collective dependence on fossil fuels, and we invite our business partners to work together to achieve this goal.

Today’s market forces require flexibility, agility, and a nimble approach to solving complex design, budget, scheduling and other delivery challenges. At Salerno/Livingston Architects we try to optimize our permanent workforce and currently maintain about a dozen staff members including 7 licensed architects, several emerging design professionals, and appropriate support personnel.

Building Analysts, the in-house forensic division of Salerno/Livingston Architects utilizes the technical and analytical knowledge of experienced architects and other specialists who have expertise in many aspects of construction technology and building science. Combined with the talents of our design staff the results are objective problem solving, thoughtful application of lessons-learned, and well detailed buildings.
