We hired Dwight Patterson when remodeling our home. We were considering making some design changes to create an open floor plan, as well as incorporate an outdoor patio with a connected roof line to a detached structure. Dwight is an excellent listener and pays attention to detail. He drew plans for our proposed changes, which we then gave to a few contractors to obtain bids. Communication was quick and responsive. Dwight’s a great guy. More...

Needed a residential foundation inspection. Spoke with Nathan who was very friendly and informative. Gravitek came to my residence and did a thorough inspection and also gave me tips for future issues that could arise around the foundation of my home. I highly recommend their service no matter how big or small. More...

We have worked with dpa on a number of projects. What sets dpa apart from other architects we've worked with is the quality of the work and the effort made to strive for construct-able and functional designs without compromising aesthetics. Dpa is also pleasure to work with.

I became acquainted with Dwight Patterson in architecture school. That experience grew into a design collaboration of ours on several occasions. From room additions, to residential remodels, and eventually to a four unit residential development project of our own known as The Point Loma Four, Dwight has always exhibited a keen sense of design and problem solving.

Dwight’s architectural career has taken several paths, including residential, religious, commercial and municipal design. As I have observed his designs in those varied architectural arenas, I have been impressed by the architectural design creativity & integrity with which he has met the demands of the client’s program, along with a respectful relationship to the environment.

I would recommend Dwight Patterson, without hesitation, as a competent and considerate Architect.

DPA is extremely responsible and understands the city/client requirements very well. He has worked in many commercial projects that required someone with a lot of knowledge and patience to accomplish the goal. DPA always meets deadlines on time and really understands his job. I highly recommend DPA for any commercial projects large and or small due to the creative ideas delivering solutions and positive attitude towards the rest of the design professional team. More...

Dwight was a pleasure to work with on our basement remodel. Skilled, personable with a keen attention to detail. The outcome was a beautiful, functional space that fit the character of the house (in which he also played a major role during its construction by a previous owner).
