Siteline Architecture: a fresh & local designer in Nevada County

OUR REGION HAS SOME SIGNATURE architects, designers and builders: Bruce Olson for “old-style” Lake Tahoe; Michael Kent Murphy for historical renovation such as Auburn Alehouse; and Ward-Young Architects for the HGTV Dream Home in Truckee.

Nevada City is home to Siteline Architecture, which has been instrumental in designing new buildings and historical renovation in Nevada, Placer and Yuba counties.

Its projects include such widely recognized buildings as the expanded Summer Thyme’s Bakery & Deli; the new Tinloy Transit Center; Hospice of the Foothills in Grass Valley; Nevada City Winery; and professional offices in the historic “Robie” House in Auburn. (Robie was one of Auburn’s most famous citizens).

Siteline has been a major player in revitalizing “The Avenue.” Besides Summer Thyme’s, its projects have included Mitchell Real Estate’s art-deco building. It also has done pro bono work for the Interfaith Food Ministry, which is expanding.

Opened in June 2002, Siteline is led by Andrew Pawlowski, an architect, and Richard Baker, a designer-project manager. The two partners have a combined 44 years of experience. Siteline also has a staff of one job captain, Jeff Janssen.

The firm handles commercial and residential projects, and works closely with the builder, whether it’s a large commercial project, detailed custom home or historical renovation.

At Summer Thyme’s, owner Amy Cooke summed up the firm’s work: “Siteline understood our vision. We were co-creators.”

“We pride ourselves on being nimble and flexible and having our clients take the lead,” says Andrew, a licensed architect with more than 25 years of experience and a LEED accredited professional.

Adds Richard, “We are timeline and budget driven.” The firm’s forte is receiving timely project approval, with know-how, cost efficiency and creativity.

Richard, a fifth-generation native of Nevada City, has been instrumental in the design and construction of complex buildings in the city’s historical district.

Siteline has been adept at capitalizing on our region’s expanding food and craft brew markets, including tenant improvements for ol’ Republic Brewery, Old 5 Mile House, and what is now the BriarPatch Cooking School.
