Architects Brooks Walker and Greg Warner met while studying architecture at the University of Oregon and later worked together at various firms before they decided to start their own, Walker Warner Architects, which is located in San Francisco. Over the last two decades, the Walker Warner Architects has focused on residential design as well as estate and winery development. The firm strives to design buildings that are energy-efficient, sustainable, and contextually appropriate. In 2000, the firm won a competition to design the Quintessa Winery and since then has worked on several other winery estates' design projects. The firm prides itself on its approach to proposed architectural projects instead of a particular style of architecture. This means that considerations such as the natural features of the building site, the nearby surroundings, and any existing structures take precedence when determining the final look of a design.
