I honestly can’t remember working with a better architect in 11 years of building in the Bay Area. Dennis and Camilla were truly a part of the team by maintaining their vision and high standards for the project while devising timely and practical solutions to issues on the site.

I had the pleasure of working with David on a residential remodel in San Francisco in 2010. As the general contractor, our work, from the estimate through the punchlist, was greatly facilitated by David and his staff. His approach is friendly, professional, and thorough. The completeness of Gast Architects’ plans and specifications, and their responsiveness to the necessary revisions and clarifications was great!
