About SABA

SABArchitects was formed in 2003 by Steve Erickson, Arthur Furukawa, and Bob Vizenor. Having worked together at several different architectural firms for the previous 10 years, Steve, Arthur, and Bob recognized their compatible and complementary skill sets and decided to create their own firm. Over the past 14 years SABA has grown from the three founders into a mid-sized firm of 20 highly skilled professional staff.  

At SABA we are passionate about creating architectural design solutions that meet our clients’ complex functional needs while also providing them with comfortable and inspiring work environments. SABA specializes in the design of research and technology laboratories, commercial office space, childcare centers, and healthcare facilities. Despite the differences in these project types, our fundamental approach to design is the same: we listen to our clients, understand their needs, and marshal our skills to craft design solutions that exceed their expectations. Realizing the important role that physical surroundings play in an individual’s health and happiness, we also strive to provide the best possible working environment for our own employees.
