David was drawn to San Francisco in 1997 for its rich architectural history, culture, and natural beauty. Over the next decade, he honed his design vision and perceptive capacity working for area notables David Gast (Gast Architects) and Sandy Walker (Walker & Moody) on custom projects in San Francisco, Napa and Hawaii. He began solo work in parallel in 2001, with a client base that still works with him today.
In 2008, David partnered with former colleague Dom Vokic as ARMOUR+VOKIC (A+V) and developed a savvy team that still comprises the DAA studio. Following six years of success and growth, the pair saw that their diverging client work would be better served by separate companies, and the residential studio became David Armour Architecture.
David learned long ago that intimate attention to client lifestyles, personal needs and investment interests is vital to creating successful, finely tuned architecture and has kept this the cornerstone of DAA. His passion for classical design is apparent in all of the firm's work. In his spare minutes, David delves into family life, arts, travel and avid baseball watching.
