About SABA


SABArchitects (SABA) 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 16 years, SABA has grown from the three founders into a mid-sized firm of 35 highly skilled professional staff.

SABA has managed to remain incredibly nimble. The principals are proud to be actively involved in projects, present at client meetings, and personally invested in the quality of each project. They have created a culture of mentorship and independence so that, at any time, you can expect to get well informed answers from any point of contact on our team.


The SABA Mission: To make some space for our clients to change the world.

SABA strives to understand our client’s goals from the very beginning for each project. We bring integrity and a commitment to serving our clients with a focus on developing and maintaining long-term client relationships.

With each individual on our team possessing a broader band of skills than one finds in most architecture firms, SABA staff are able to fulfill varying roles as they move from project to project. More importantly, we find this diversity of skills within an individual brings value to our clients as we can bring forth more ideas to more facets of a project as staff are not confined to their silos.
