About Verdier Architects

Mendocino County Residential and Commercial Architect

Environmentally responsive design and producing fine wine defines the great passions of architect Ron Verdier AIA, principal of Verdier Architects. Ron is a long time resident of one of Californiaís growing wine regions, the Anderson Valley. His office and vineyard, Frattey Shams Vineyards are located in Boonville in southern Mendocino County. Ron has been engaged in local activities and has an impressive list of residential, public, commercial, and wine related projects in Mendocino and Sonoma counties. Ronís philosophy of stewardship, credibility, and value are informed by both by his international experience, California experience, and his life as a rural architect and farmer. Each phase of the design and production of a fine building project must take into account sustainable best practices for site analysis, climate, energy conservation, appropriate materials, life cycle costs, and the impact of construction on the environment. Just as in Ronís vineyard, every aspect of the design and construction processes is hands-on, carefully developed to produce successful results of both short and long term value to the client. Ronís expanding list of successfully completed projects, satisfied clients, and established builder relationships provides substantial proof of his credibility as an architect and local businessman.
