We have been a partner to Shubin + Donaldson on over a dozen projects in the past five years. One of their great hallmarks has been achieving a high-design solution for each client within a reasonable budget, whether it be construction or FF+E.
I have the highest respect for their team and the talents they bring to bear. More...
I have had the pleasure to work with Robin Donaldson and his staff for the last six years on five different projects , all have turned out incredible !! Robin really gets it , it's not very often you have the opportunity to work with an Archetect that not only is an amazing artist but can do the construction math at same time !! I have been a developer/builder in Santa Barbara for over 25 years and have worked with some of the largest ego's you can imagine so when I hired Robin to design three beachfront homes for me I was pleasantly surprised , ( more like blown away !! ) that his ego did not match his talent , I explained to him what my goals were and he not only listened but exceeded in meeting my expected criteria . Our most current project was a 56 unit high end student housing complex located adjacent to UCSB that won an archectecture award before we even completed the buildings !!
So to sum up my experience working with Robin and staff : stunning archectecture : simple to build : professional and very cognoscente of a budget regardless if its a custom beach home or residential income property : and just an over all great person and artist .

An extremely professional group run by top notch Architects and Designers.
They will give your project that special edge that stands above the rest and creates real and legitimate form and function without sacrificing the budget. Their sleek and relevant style is present in every creation that leaves the office, with regards to any product type. Innovation is a key factor driving both Shubin and Donaldson. Their attention to the surrounding environment, vast knowledge of green and Leed building technologies, and knack for creating fresh and comfortable aesthetics more than satisfies the wishes and dreams of each client that comes through the door. I had the pleasure of working on a large research and devolvement project which was a retrofit and reuse of an existing faceless building. Their expertise brought the building to life, shaping a cutting edge and state of the art facility. More...
