What We're All About

Farrell · Faber & Associates is an innovative, award-winning architecture and design team based in Santa Rosa, Calif., founded by Kevin Farrell and Shaun Faber in 1989. We specialize in residential work of all sizes and varieties because that is what we do well but, more than that, because that is what we enjoy doing – working with individual homeowners to design them the home of their dreams.

Our team at Farrell · Faber and Associates, Architecture and Planning, is committed to these key principles:


We care about our clients. We pride ourselves as architects who really get to know our clients and understanding what they are looking for in their home. That begins by asking questions and truly listening to what is being said in the answers.  Caring about who you are and what your desires are enables us to design the best home- for you!


Our reputation in the community is of the utmost importance to us.  This begins by always choosing the right decision, not the easy one.  It also means standing behind our work and our word, every single time. By doing this over the past three decades, we have a reputation that precedes us with contractors, building departments, tradespeople, and you, our client.

Quality and Innovation

We believe great design begins with forms and proportions that meld with the site and its conditions, and then is carried through with attention to the details.  This extends to our construction documents which we consider “works of art”, easy to read, comprehensive, and always held to the highest internal standard.

Staying on the cutting edge of both design and technology is critical.  This doesn’t mean being trendy but it does mean keeping up with current expectations and best practices in home design.  We are always looking forward to stay ahead of the curve.


We firmly believe that this process, from blank paper to handing over keys, cannot be done without the work of a “team of professionals”.  We have worked hard to cultivate not just our own team here at Farrell · Faber, but a community of consultants that all not only work well together, but enjoy working together.  That translates to a more efficient process and one that is more seamless for the client.
