Noll & Tam Architects

Noll & Tam Architects’ work reflects a dedication to the particular people and places that make our projects unique. Chris Noll and Janet Tam founded the firm in 1992 to establish a talented studio of architects that pursued the ideal of active community involvement and environmentally responsive design. Today, we have 40 creative and energetic staff members in one Berkeley office, including 16 LEED Accredited Professionals. For more than 25 years Noll & Tam Architects has focused on the design of educational, institutional, and public buildings – libraries, community/recreational centers, civic centers, public safety buildings, and universities and community college facilities.

We have a passion for architecture and a keen sense of empathy. You can’t have both without being devoted to sustainable design. The things we value and enjoy connect us to our partners and our communities. They inspire designs that make us feel whole. Our uncommon nature defines us and unites us, and does so in a wonderfully meaningful way. We celebrate this in everything we do, for the benefit of all.
