Daniel Backman, LEED AP


Daniel’s passion for architecture comes from a lifelong interest in exploring urban spaces, discovering what makes them unique and finding the best places to eat along the way!

He is deeply invested in the planning and design of spaces that encourage urban growth and support creativity. Daniel leads complex visual and performing arts projects for community college clients, and mixed use projects that will provide housing and commercial vibrancy to Sonoma County’s downtowns.

Clients value his engagement with all aspects of a project, from conceptual design and 3D digital models, to design team coordination and construction observation. He never misses the opportunity for a site visit, and relishes peeling back the layers of older buildings in order to bring them back to life.

As a young art student, my interest in painting scenes of urban transformation ultimately inspired me to pursue a career in architecture.
