Backen & Gillam Architects’ experience in specialty building types covers a broad spectrum, including private residences, resorts, restaurants and wineries. Headquartered in Sausalito, CA, just outside San Francisco, the firm has been featured as one of the top 100 Architects in Architectural Digest (2007-2016) and one of the top 30 in the Robb Report.

Looking at these images of our Texas Horse Ranch project’s dining room, you can definitely spot the AD 100 firm’s signature style: earthy materials, sunbaked palettes, free-flowing floor plans that maximize light and exposure to natural surroundings.

When the Sausalito firm was engaged to design a large compound in Texas, knowing that their designs would be executed expertly was paramount. At Sebastian, we work extremely hard to provide detailed and thoughtful solutions that allow us to reach target budgets without compromising quality or aesthetics.

That’s why we were gratified to see that one of the nation’s most respected architecture firms trusted our project team to carry out their design intent and appreciate Sebastian’s solution-oriented approach.

“…they brought solutions to the table…”

“As a design-driven firm, we appreciated Sebastian Construction Group’s ability to adapt to design changes and their design sensitivity. As an out-of-state architect, we trusted their project team to ensure that the workmanship was up to par and reflected our design intent, which they exceeded. They were creative and resourceful and brought solutions to the table, rather than problems.”
