About the Author

Rick Kadello & Paul Larsen provide architectural design services for Custom and Estate Residential, Residential Remodels, Wineries, Tasting Rooms and Light Commercial projects in Sonoma, Napa and Marin Counties and abroad via internet services. The experience of both Rick Kadello and Paul Larsen in the field of design dates back to when we worked together in a local design firm for several years. Based upon common business principles and design philosophies Kadello and Larsen was established and has been a fixture in Sonoma County architecture since 1993. We have a passion for design and working with our clients to realize their architectural ideas. Our accomplishments over the years include homes in all types of settings, such as prestigious subdivisions, country estates, coastal contemporary, and city infill conditions. In addition our portfolio includes the design of full winery facilities and tasting rooms. Our years of experience in one location have allowed us to establish long running relationships with local building officials and numerous consultants to benefit our client’s projects. We take our art seriously and work to keep up with the latest trends in architecture, from the aesthetics of architecture and design, to the latest materials, the administrative challenges, and the medium in which architecture is now practiced. We have found more than ever before, that our profession has become a national and even global one, serving many of our clients who are located out of state or out of the country. Given the use of the internet and other means, we are diligently using technology to serve our long distance clients with the same care and efficiency as our local clientele. In order to serve our clients with the personal interest that they warrant and deserve Kadello and Larsen must be discerning in the number of projects that we accept each year. Each of our clients will have a direct design relationship with Rick or Paul, and know that they can expect to receive the highest level of quality attention.
