LEAVE THE WORLD BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT.
Anacapa’s design philosophy translates into thriving community intersections and distinctive private residences. By focusing on the cultural and environmental impacts of reshaping space, Anacapa balances the social responsibility of urban planning and development, while daring to implement unexpected and imaginative functionality.
Established in Santa Barbara, California as Dan Weber Architecture in 2008, Anacapa emerged in November 2016, as a way of honoring the collective contribution underlying our design ethos. Anacapa illustrates a connection to the Santa Barbara Channel’s ecological history and stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the local community that has nurtured our vision. Our studio was founded in the Funk Zone on Anacapa Street, a distinct locality magnetized by lively grassroots commerce. This uncontested hallowed ground nurtured our company’s roots and remains fundamental to our creative identity.
